New article by Kathy Charmaz ‘Experiencing Stigma and Exclusion’ #sssi #sociology #illness #stigma #neoliberalism

In her latest article in Symbolic Interaction entitled ‘Experiencing Stigma and Exclusion: The Influence of Neoliberal Perspectives, Practices, and Policies on Living with Chronic Illness and Disability’ Kathy Charmaz examines pivotal experiences of chronically ill people and shows how neoliberalism can frame their alternatives, interactions, and actions. By virtue of her examination Charmaz argues for a reconsidering of Goffman’s concept of stigma to include how larger social policies and practices affect experiencing stigma and exclusion. Her study also illuminates temporal features of receiving a diagnosis, disclosing illness, and dealing with disabilities and unpredictable bodies.
