Extraordinary Bodies, Disability Justice, and Metamorphosis

All of our bodies are gradually undergoing metamorphosis. Over the course of human life, we all become disabled. Yet, many people with extraordinary bodies and minds experience discrimination in everyday life. Just as Gregor Samsa was shunned, many disabled people are excluded in social interactions and are alienated by the built environment. Our speakers will be asked to imagine metamorphosis and transformations on a grand societal scale.

This event will be live-captioned for deaf and hard-of-hearing audience members.
