Caitlin’s dissertation examines the role of healthcare-specific commonplaces in ways that rare disease is narrativized. The chapter she will be workshopping is a qualitative study about the ways that narratives shape the rare disease patient's understanding of their experiences. Drawing from research done in previous chapters on the role of healthcare-specific commonplaces in rare disease narratives, Caitlin interviews 8 people in one rare disease community and examines how those commonplaces inform their own illness narrative. 

If you'd like to join, please rsvp ( by August 1. At that time, we'll share Caitlin’s chapter with you as well as the Teams link. During the workshop, we’ll begin with brief framing comments from Caitlin. After that, we’ll have an open discussion for everyone to share feedback on the structure, analysis, and ideas in the chapter.
