Could the fear of death be at the root of our culture’s discomfort with bodies that are deemed sick, unhealthy, or “disabled?”

Furthermore, who decides which bodies are “normal” and which need to be cured in the first place? In this presentation, Kelly Crodian-Shuff will use a disability studies framework to argue that the stigma attached to perceived disabilities is a direct consequence of our death-phobic society, and that by accepting the bodily limitations of ALL people, can we create a more compassionate and inclusive world.

Snacks provided; discussion to follow!
