Disability Culture and Activism: UCSB and Beyond
Please join UCSB Library for an event inspired by a class project and exhibition highlighting the history of disability culture and activism at UCSB.
Students from Jesse Miller's “Disability Aesthetics" course taught in winter quarter, 2020 will present their course project, an exhibition created using archival materials from the Library's Special Research Collections. To connect the history of disability culture and activism with the present, students will also lead a discussion with Rod Lathim, the founder of Access Theatre. Access Theater was a pioneering accessible theatre company based in Santa Barbara for 18 years.
This event is in honor of Disability Employee Appreciation Month and the 30th anniversary of the signing of the American with Disabilities Act. It is also in conjunction with another event co-sponsored by the UCSB Library and the Carsey-Wolf Center: A virtual discussion with the directors of Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution (2020),
