"Crip Displacements: Dispossession, Disability, and Resistance in Queer Times" Dr. Robert McRuer, George Washington Univ (Updated 11/15/13)
Lecture by Dr. Robert McRuer, Professor of English and Department Chair, George Washington University. Dr. McRuer's most well known work attends to cultural sites where critical queerness and disability contest heteronormativity and compulsory able-bodiedness. He is the author of "Crip Theory: Cultural Signs of Queerness and Disability" and the co-editor of "Sex and Disability" with Anna Mollow. He is currently completing a book tentatively titled "Cripping Austerity: Essays on Disability, Sexuality, and Neoliberalism," considering locations of disability within contemporary political economies and the roles that disabled movements and representations play in countering hegemonic forms of globalization.
