Antonio "Joey" Ferraro is a PhD student specializing in twentieth- and twenty-first-century American literature, narrative theory and the medical humanities. His research focuses on didactic illness narratives, with a particular interest in how those narratives, in the unique challenges they pose to readers, offer opportunities to enhance cultural, medical and aesthetic ideas about living with and representing illness. He has presented work at the International Society for the Study of Narrative conference, the Annual Meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association and the Modernist Studies Association conference. His work has been published or is forthcoming in a textbook on disability life narratives, a collected volume on graphic illness narratives and embodiment and in the journal Literature and Medicine.
