Zicklin Endowed Chair and the Honors Academy, will bring together artists, activists, and scholars to discuss, explore, and critique the inclusion — or lack thereof — of artists with disabilities in performance and disability studies. The symposium will consist of dance, theater, and cabaret performances and panel discussions, culminating in a keynote talk from Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, professor of English and bioethics, and disability studies scholar, Emory University.
