Lauren Albright Flanigan
Lauren Albright Flanigan is a PhD candidate at the University of Maryland with an interest in portrayals of illness and disability in visual media. Her dissertation explores the pink culture of breast cancer survival as represented by graphic novels, photography, advertizing, and film. By analyzing the intersections of illness, race, gender, class, and sexuality, she reveals the ways media paint a positive disease experience for some patients, while disqualifying others from narratives of hope.
