Andries Hiskes

Andries Hiskes is a lecturer at the department of nursing at The Hague University of Applied Sciences, where he teaches on narrative medicine, participative healthcare, and disability studies. As a PhD candidate at the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society, he works on the intersection between disability studies and affect theory. His research examines literature and art in which affective responses are evoked and/or shared by deviant and disabled bodies, focusing on how the artwork is constructed to elicit such responses. Concurrently, through the added emphasis on emotional and affective responses provoked by disabled bodies, his research explores how art may manipulate such responses.
