FellowSpeak: "Eco Soma: Speculative Performance Experiments"

Petra Kuppers, Hunting Family Faculty Fellow, professor, English language and literature, women’s studies, art and design, and theater and drama
Tuesday, February 18, 2020
12:30-1:30 PM
Osterman Common Room, #1022 202 S. Thayer Map
In her talk, Petra Kuppers will present ecopoetic disability culture work that engages contact zones between human and non-human others. She will focus on art-based methods of envisioning change, and show that disability, traditionally seen as an enemy to environmentalism (with concrete ramps supposedly damaging pristine wildernesses), can instead offer imaginative ways toward living well in climate catastrophe, unrest, and challenge.
