The Collective for Research on Epistemologies and Ontologies of Embodied Risk (CORÉRISC) is a new research team focused on how the idea of embodied risk provides access to alternative ways of knowing and being in the world in dialogue with intersectional queer and feminist theory. Today, interdisciplinary cultural theory is wrestling with three critical senses of risk. The first considers knowledge and experience of risk, the lived, embodied risks that differentially inform human and nonhuman lives: structures of violence, slow death, marginalized identities, and more.
