Emily Rogers

Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology
Cultural Anthropology


My research and teaching interests lie at the intersection of science, technology, and society (STS), medical anthropology, gender/sexuality studies, and disability studies. Broadly, I’m interested in what happens when emergent forms of debility strain how Western biomedicine currently understands bodies and treats disease—and in what people do in the meanwhile.

I am working on my first book project, Clinical Proximities: ME/CFS and Biomedicine’s Binds (manuscript in progress). It is an archival and ethnographic examination of the politics of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS) in the United States.
