Application Deadline: Dissertation Seminar: Disability as Method: Crippling the Archive

May 15

Led by Jason Farr (Marquette University) and Elizabeth
Bearden (University of Wisconsin-Madison).
Four meetings across the academic year on Fridays:
September 27, 2024; November 1, 2024; February 7, 2025;
and April 25, 2025, from 9:30 AM-12:30 PM Central Time
In-person at the Newberry
This seminar aims to assist graduate students in the early
phase of dissertation writing who have an interest in
disability studies and/or crip theory. No previous courses in
disability studies or crip theory are required. The seminar
welcomes dissertators who want to learn and write about
intersectional approaches to disability and early modern and
eighteenth-century embodiment more broadly – including
projects that assess how disability intersects with race,
Indigeneity, class, gender, sexuality, and so forth
