Gender and Disability: A Faculty Workshop
Chancellor’s Conference Room, LSC 14th floor
This workshop by Rosemarie Garland-Thomson will provide a discussion of how gender and disability intersect in several fields of representation, including popular media, portraiture, classical art, advertising, self-presentation venues, the breast cancer movement, feature films, and art photography. It approaches disability as a human variation produced by interaction of impairment with social environment and considers the ways in which gender and disability inflect one another as part of this interaction. Discussion will consider several images/artworks that demonstrate some of the variety of ways in which gender and disability intersect in contemporary visual and material culture.
