Worlding: Visibility, Disability, and Belonging

David Trend


David Trend | Chair of the Department of Art | University of California

Wednesday, September 25, 2013  2-3:45 pm  

OISE/University of Toronto OISE boardroom, Room #12-199

Worlding: Visibility, Disability, and Belonging David Trend will discuss his new book on media and game culture, Worlding: Identity, Media and Imagination in a Digital Age (2013), and his recent work on disability. Educators can benefit from new understandings of belonging across differing “worlds,” especially as we recognize experiential diversity among the young and the growing needs of an aging population. Drawing on theories of normativity and dismodernism, the talk will focus on interdependence in everyday life.
