[UK Event] CCDS Seminar: Dr. Alice Hall —Foreign Bodies: Disability and Beauty in Toni Morrison's Writing

Foreign Bodies: Disability and Beauty in Toni Morrison's Writing

Dr. Alice Hall

Université Paris-Diderot

Date: Wednesday 27 June 2012

Time: 3.15pm–4.45pm

Place: Eden 109, Liverpool Hope University

This paper examines the relationship between disability and beauty as a
central preoccupation of Toni Morrison’s fictional writing, her critical
discourse and her most recent work as a curator. I am interested in how
Morrison’s critical writing about race and identity intersects with
shifting notions of beauty in her fiction, but also, in turn, how these
ideas can provide a conceptual framework for writing about literature and
disability in general.
