Ecocrip Sensibilities: Mending, Care, and Love Affairs - with Naomi Ortiz
Hosted by the Office of Interdisciplinary Programs and Outreach at the Burton Blatt Institute and Wordgathering: A Journal of Disability Poetry and Literature, the series “(Dis)courses: Interdisciplinary Disability Dialogues” returns this semester with four exciting conversations—with luminaries who are engaged variously with many forms of innovative and intersectional Disability cultural work.

This 90-minute webinar will include American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation, live captioning, image descriptions, and an opportunity for registered Zoom webinar participants to engage with the featured presenter and discussant. Any additional accommodations requests should be made by Thursday, March 31st, using the "Additional accommodations requests" box at the bottom of this form. This event will also be recorded and made publicly available, online. Post-production, the video will include ASL interpretation and edited/polished captions, an accompanying transcript, and a summary of online resources of interest and relevance—all accessible, free, and open to the public.

Cultivating love affairs with ourselves, communities, and places means loving within states of stress. The disability community has unique knowledge in working towards accessibility and care in times of perpetual uncertainty. Join us as we discuss how to draw from our lineages, cultures, and ancestors to gently touch vulnerability and create our own definitions of sustainability.

The (Dis)courses Interdisciplinary Disability Dialogues series offers exciting, ongoing events on disability literature, media, and the arts, focusing on critical reflection, teaching, and research in today’s world.
