A Dialogue on Cure presented by Status of Women and Equity Committee Export this event to calendar

Tuesday, October 20, 2015 — 4:00 PM EDT

A renowned writer, speaker, scholar, and poet, Eli Clare focuses on the intersections of gender, race, class, sexuality and disability. His most recent work challenges us to re-conceive the idea of the “cure.” poster with Eli Clare smilingThe medical model of disability, with its focus on “cure” or management of conditions, is often criticized as stigmatizing and disempowering for individuals with disabilities.

Eli Clare's books, Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with the Cure (forthcoming) and Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness and Liberation, are both published by Duke University Press. His interactive talk will ask us to carefully consider how we position ourselves, our research, and our social justice commitments in relation to the monolithic notion of “cure."
