Liz Miller, a PhD student of English emphasizing in rhetoric, composition and literacy, is also working toward a graduate interdisciplinary specialization in disability studies. Specifically, Miller is intrigued by the ways that minds and bodies move through public spaces, now and at various historical moments, and wishes to draw attention to diverse ways of being, dwelling, participating and/or subverting. This, ideally, will translate into the construction of accessible classroom pedagogies as well as caring and sustainable life practices more generally. Miller’s current research delves into care networks among graduate students, particularly focusing on mental health strategies for surviving in a disabling institution. She is also the graduate research associate for the Building Healthcare Collectives project, an interdisciplinary collaboration that seeks to foster work at the intersections of medicine, rhetoric, and disability studies.
