I would like to share with you our new Disability Culture video, just in
time for classrooms all over the place! It's on youtube, 22 minutes long,
free, and subtitled.
Next semester, my Collaboration and Poetry class will be audio-describing
segments, and we'll create a website for the video, with alternate
soundtracks (a feature not available on youtube).
The video was created during a three-day art-based research symposium, a
University of Michigan Initiative on Disability Studies Spring Conference,
in February 2012. Collaborators include Jennifer Eisenhauer, Melanie
Yergeau, Mark Romoser, Wobbly Dance (Erik Ferguson and Yulia Arakelyan),
Neil Marcus, Ariel Osterweis, Aimee Meredith Cox, Cheryl Kaplan Zachariah,
Yvonne Schmidt, Brooke Willock, and many others.
