Dr. Fuson Wang (University of California-Riverside) will be visiting us next Friday, September 23, at 2:00pm in Heroy 001 (Heroy Auditorium) offering a “Brief Literary History of Disability”

A Brief Literary History of Disability is a convenient, lucid, and accessible entry point into the rapidly evolving conversation around disability in literary studies. Drawing on both literary history and disability theory, Wang’s talk will explore three key questions:
