Abstract

The current COVID-19 pandemic has brought about change in the structures and categories of discursive production, while at the same time has successfully retained the institutionalized difference between bodies, gender, class, caste, and race. This article attempts to understand how the “deviant body” continues to be the marker of one’s disability despite experiences felt collectively as a result of disabling circumstances caused by COVID-19.
