|Lisa Diedrich received her Ph.D. in Women's Studies from Emory University in 2001. Since then, she has taught in the Women's and Gender Studies Program at Stony Brook University. Her research and teaching interests include critical medical studies, disability studies, and feminist theories and methodologies. She is the author of Treatments: Language, Politics, and the Culture of Illness (Minnesota, 2007). She is also the editor (with Victoria Hesford) of Feminist Time Against Nation Time (Lexington, 2008). She is currently working on two projects. The first is called Underlying Conditions: A Prehistory of AIDS, 1960-1985, and traces the continuities and discontinuities between AIDS activism in the early 1980s and several earlier transformations of the practices of health and illness, including, for example, the emergence of Family Practice as a new specialization within medicine, and the emergence of health activist movements, like the women's health movement, that would influence medicine from the outside. The second project begins where the first leaves off, around 1985, and explores the scientific, medical, political, and economic enactments of breast cancer on Long Island, through oral history and discourse analysis of the popular media accounts and scientific studies of the possible relationship between breast cancer and the environment of Long Island.|
