Unintended Consequences: Panel on the impact of "opioid crisis" messaging on those with chronic pain

In the past few years, the narrative of the "opioid crisis" has permeated every aspect of our society. However, there are some unintended consequences of this messaging, especially for those who live with chronic pain. From being called liars to having to go off needed medications cold turkey, there are many ways that the messaging of opioids being inherently bad negatively impacts those who live with ongoing pain. This panel explores multiple experiences of these challenges.

Panel Discussion

Webcomics and Depression

Dr. Leah Misemer discusses how the spread of Allie Brosh's webcomic Hyperbole and a Half increases the visibility of the experience of depression, while the comments section provides a space for conversations about depression that counteract the feelings of isolation associated with the illness. Based on this case study, Misemer suggests that, as comics and digital media, webcomics are uniquely positioned to raise awareness about and to counter the social stigma surrounding mental illness.

Webcomics & Depression

Because they appear in social media feeds and are easily shared online, webcomics can be a powerful method of solidarity building for marginalized audiences. In this public lecture, Dr. Leah Misemer from the Georgia Institute of Technology will discuss how the spread of Allie Brosh's webcomic Hyperbole and a Half increases the visibility of the experience of depression, while the comments section provides a space for conversations about depression that counteract the feelings of isolation associated with the illness.

Wikipedia is the largest, most popular online reference work, covering all areas of history and contemporary life. However, both the topics it covers and the people who edit its articles don’t reflect the diversity of the LGBTQ community. In honor of LGBTQ History Month, join us for a Queer Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. Together we’ll improve representation of LGBTQ people, events, and topics in Wikipedia. This event is co-sponsored by the Spectrum Center.
