Uncommon Bodies: Double-Header Research Presentation

February 12, 2021 @ 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CST

Uncommon Bodies Consortium for the Study of the Premodern Center for Early modern History and Macalester College

February 12 at 12:00-1:30 pm (Central Time)

Double-header Research Presentation: Simone Chess (Wayne State University), “Hacking Sex in the Renaissance.” Lindsey Row-Heyveld (Luther College), “Careless Arden: Able-bodiedness in As You Like It.”  

The event poster repeats all the information in the event post. These talks approach the question of what might come next in early modern disability studies from two very different angles: Lindsey Row-Heyveld’s work on ablebodiedness and inattention explores a disability studies that could help us understand the construction of normalcy, modeling ways that disability knowledges apply broadly outside of the usual canon of early modern disability texts, while Simone Chess’s work on adaptive sex practices experiments with a disability studies centered in embodiment, modeling an increased specificity about disabled practices in history. Despite these very different approaches, the papers dovetail in their shared commitment to envisioning a capacious, creative, and multi-vocal future for early modern disability studies.
