(Un)doing Diabetes successfully deconstructs and reconstructs narratives around diabetes, disease and disability, puncturing the problematic metaphors and complex identities that populate activism, media and everyday life and gesturing towards crip futures that expand the potential for human flourishing.

Too often diabetes is reduced to a medical problem on which everyone seems free to pass comment. The result is a proliferation of attitudes and assumptions that only serve to erect multiple psychological and indeed physical barriers. This major volume disrupts such received notions of diabetes by recognizing and situating lived experience at the center of all profound understanding.

In this sector, we have a lot of change to make. This book should be read from beginning to end by everybody who lives with or without diabetes.

“(Un)doing Diabetes situates diabetes in a thick, intersectional, resistant, and world-making context.  These essays make trouble, queer and crip diabetes, link it generatively to race and fatness, and to multiple traditions of activism imagining a more expansive, accessible, and just world.
