Anthropologists explore sequential art, particularly comics, as an accessible medium to co-produce knowledge about trauma and disability with research collaborators. However, practices of image description developed by blind scholars and artists need to be integrated into these projects to ensure visual studies are accessible. Collaborating with sighted service users of drop-in centers in Denmark, we reflect on the process of creating comics and image descriptions about their experiences with digital access, trauma, and disability. By analyzing insights from both drawing and describing images, we propose this method in medical anthropology as one way to build research collaborations that embrace disability expertise.
