558: Temporalities of Disability

3:30 PM–4:45 PM Saturday, Jan 5, 2019 (US - Central)

Hyatt Regency - Michigan 1C

Session Information

Description: In exploring the temporal horizons of nineteenth-century disability narratives, this panel aims to open new lines of dialogue between disability studies and the robust scholarship on the politics and ethics of temporality produced by nineteenth-century Americanists such as Lloyd Pratt, Elizabeth Freeman, Dana Luciano, Wai Chee Dimock, and Cindy Weinstein. Panelists draw on theories of queer temporality, narrative temporality, and temporal biopolitics.
