Sophia Jaworski is a PhD student in the faculty of Anthropology and the Women and Gender Studies collaborative program at the University of Toronto. Her research interests problematize ‘medically unexplained chronic illness’ through investigating the politics and lived experiences of toxins and chemicals in everyday life. Her dissertation examines symptoms treated as environment-linked under the umbrella of environmental sensitivities, and environmental justice using ethnographic fieldwork and experimental methods in order to contribute to a feminist interrogation of the current politics of life and capitalism in Canada.”
