Join the University of Washington Office of Public Lectures for an evening with Jaipreet Virdi, scholar, activist, and Associate Professor at the University of Delaware. The author of Hearing Happiness: Deafness Cures in History, Dr. Virdi asks us to consider how being disabled changes the way people view the world and the things they create. Through these perspectives, she invites alternative approaches for remaking crip worlds, one in which disabled people, and the disabled gaze, are centered first and foremost.
