What Can a Body Do? - Amanda CachiaExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, September 26, 2012 — 1:00 PM EDT

In 1990, French philosopher Gilles Deleuze famously grappled with the question and title to his essay, "What Can a Body Do?" This lecture will narrow Deleuze's question, asking "what can a disabled body do?" What does it mean to inscribe a contemporary work of art with experiences of disability?
