Guest Lecturer 6pm
“Disability Justice: Re-centering Power in Movement Building”
taught by Patricia Berne (of Sins Invalid)
hosted by Disability Studies and Gender and Women’s Studies at UC Berkeley.
Since it is a closed course, feel free to message me if you want to attend.
The topic is on the disability justice concept of “wholeness”.
I’ll be sharing work like crip sick tankas, some SDQ love poems,
and reflections on medical systems as a trans POC disabled person.
There will be refreshments provided & a Q&A.
We have a surpise out of town guest tomorrow in our Disability Justice course — Monday, March 16th, Disability Studies and Gender and Women’s Studies are honored to bring you guest lecturer, Kay Ulanday Barrett.
We will be meeting in the room that we usually do,
