Rebekah Taussig
Event description: 

Disability is often framed as the unfortunate exception or problem to fix on the periphery, but what would happen if we brought disability to the center of the conversation? Rebekah Taussig grew up believing that her disabled body made her an outsider and disqualified her from some of the most fundamental parts of being human. In this talk, she resists that narrative, exploring how our perspectives might expand if we brought disability to the center. How might our understanding of beauty, love and romance, movement, work, and storytelling evolve and transform? What new possibilities might unfurl as we imagine together?

Live auto captions will be provided for this event. If you need additional disability-related accommodations, please contact the Office of Institutional Equity and Access (OIEA) at equity@yale.edu. Requests should be made by Wednesday, January 20.
