Patient. is a collection of poems that explores the legacy of gynecology and sideshow display through the voice of a present speaker a researcher who is haunted by the ghosts of Anarcha Wescott, Lucy Zimmerman, Betsey Harris, Joice Heth, Esmin Green, and many other women whose bodies have been the object of public and medical curiosity and exploitation. This talk will tackle the processes by which creative practice and knowledge production intersect in this text. A process, which is an experiment in itself.
