Feb 19th, the “good” body (Chicago Edition)

Friday, February 19th (2 – 4 PM) Gallery 400, Lecture Room
the “good” body (Chicago edition) is a performative lecture centered within the intersection of disability and race. Through this multidimensional lens, I’m seeking to instigate a deeper dialog surrounding the current social and political tensions present in our contemporary society.  It was originally presented as the keynote lecture for Middlebury College’s Clifford Symposium this past fall. Chicago will experience a new and revised version!

There will be ASL interpretation, real-time captioning, audio description, personal assistants available and encourage attendees to refrain from wearing scents. Gallery 400 is  wheelchair accessible.
