Disability Art on Lockdown with Robert McRuer

Please join us as Dr. Ricky Varghese, the Tanis Doe Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Disability Studies, hosts Dr. Robert McRuer for a talk on Disability Art.

"Disability Art on Lockdown"" attends to disabled ways of knowing, or cripistemologies, that have been particularly useful for navigating the global economic, political, and health crises we are facing. This title has a double valence, gesturing first towards the ways in which disability and art have been, increasingly, on lockdown (facing massive cuts from governments everywhere), even before 2020. Second, however, the title points to some of the amazing ways that crip art was generated during the lockdown of 2020.
