Dr. Stephanie Jenkins, professor in the School of History, Philosophy, and Religion and co-director of the Phronesis Lab for Engaged Ethics at Oregon State University, examines the lives of individuals with reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD), a chronic pain condition so severe that it is often called “suicide pain." Using Judith Butler’s concept of livability, she explores four forms of abandonment that individuals with RSD experience.
