  • Sep. 22nd, 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM: Jay Dolmage Lecture
    @ Memorial Hall Lobby and Room 127:
    "Disabled Upon Arrival: Technologies of Disablement and Racialization at the Border"
    In this talk Professor Dolmage will investigate the ways that rhetorics (and connected technologies) of eugenics and immigration restriction opportunistically established new categories and schemes of race and disability at North American borders in the early part of the twentieth century. He will also engage with the audience to explore how these pseudo-scientific legacies inflect current attitudes -- and connected policies and practices -- surrounding race and disability.
    Jay Dolmage is an Associate Professor of English at the University of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada. He is the editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. His book Disability Rhetoric was published in 2014 by Syracuse University Press. His essays on rhetoric, writing, and disability studies have appeared in several journals and edited collections, including Cultural Critique and Rhetoric Review. Jay grew up in the disability rights movement in Canada and remains committed to promoting greater access within higher education and across society. 
    Talk and reception are free and open to the public
