Feb. 24: “Gawking, Gaping, Staring: Living in Marked Bodies”

Eli Clare, author of Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and
Liberation, will be speaking at Bryn Mawr on Tuesday, Feb. 24th!

– Informal dinner and discussion with Eli – Batten House – 5:30 PM
– Presentation of “Gawking Gaping Staring” – Dalton 300 – 7:30 PM

He’ll be giving an interactive presentation titled “Gawking, Gaping,
Staring: Living in Marked Bodies.” ¬†As Eli puts it, “Disabled people,
trans people, fat people, and people of color all know what it’s like
to be stared at. Through words and images, Eli explores the internal
experiences of living in marked bodies and the external meanings of
oppression and bodily difference.”
