A joint presentation by David T. Mitchell and Sharon L. Snyder
April 1, Thursday
4 to 6 PM
David T. Mitchell, Institute on Disabilities, Temple University
Sharon L. Snyder, Brace Yourselves Productions
In this co-presentation, Mitchell and Snyder analyze the ideological, aesthetic, and pedagogical effects of disability film festivals. Mitchell and Snyder are particularly interested to explore the way such festivals, by screening an array of international films, manage to respond to newly evolving concepts of “being disabled” even as they resist articulating a shared identity based on collective coherence of experience, affect, or diagnosis.
