Special guest to give talk in PROD 311
OPEN to all interested students
Danielle Peers, PhD, Banting Postdoctoral Fellow
Communication Studies, Concordia University
Dr. Danielle Peers is an academic, activist, video artist and emerging performance artist whose work engages with disability, queerness, racialization, and the moving body. Danielle is currently a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow in Communication Studies at Concordia University.
OVERVIEW of TALK
Through critical disability theory, personal stories, and examples from her art practice, Danielle will explore how three different ways of engaging with disability can transform artistic practices and performances. The first engagement is accommodating: welcoming non-normative individuals into our performance spaces. The second engagement is politicizing: denaturalizing and removing systemic barriers to full and meaningful participation. The third engagement is cripping: actively seeking out the generative possibilities that emerge from disability experience and culture. Attendees will be invited to workshop these ideas in relation to their current projects and processes.
