Book Celebration for Dr. Julie Minich

Monday, February 24 at 3:30pm to 5:00pm

Liberal Arts Building (CLA), 1.302E 305 23RD ST E, Austin, Texas 78712

The Center for Women's and Gender Studies hosts a celebration of Dr. Julie Minich's new book, "Accessible Citizenships: Disability, Nation, and the Cultural Politics of Greater Mexico." Minich will give a brief talk followed by a discussion led by Dr Laura Gutierrez. A reception follows.

"Accessible Citizenships" examines Chicana/o cultural representations that conceptualize political community through images of disability. Working against the assumption that disability is a metaphor for social decay or political crisis, Minich analyzes literature, film and visual art post-1980 in which representations of non-normative bodies work to expand our understanding of what it means to belong to a political community.
