The Impact of (Some) Disabilities on Virtue and Well-being by Kevin Timpe

Add to Calendar4:15 pm – 5:45 pm

Kevin Timpe is Professor of Philosophy at Calvin College and President of 22 Advocacy, a non-profit advocacy group for children with disabilities. Dr. Timpe says, "It is common for people to think that being or becoming disabled would lead them to have a lower degree of well-being. However, empirical data suggests that this common view is mistaken. In contrast, many disability scholars argue that disability itself, apart from contingent social factors, does not undermine individual's well-being. I will argue that there is reason to think a middle view is correct." This talk is free and open to the public.  #TalksAndArts  #Prindle

This is Where We Are Now by Keah N. Brown

Add to Calendar7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Keah N. Brown is a journalist, freelance writer and the creator of "DisabledAndCute. Ms. Brown says "To be quite frank disabled people are tired. We are tired of not being seen and heard and we are done taking a backseat in the fight for proper representation. The time is now to speak up and out, to tell the world who we are and why that matters. Representations for people with disabilities are problematic and harmful not only to the disability community but the culture as a whole. This truth is self-evident but the gist is that we exclude people with disabilities from the important cultural conversations, the ones that influence how we see the world and what is reflected back to us, we are effectively creating a world of half-truths and encouraging the damaging idea that the only worth bodies are thin and non-disabled bodies. In order to avoid such fate, we must confront it. We have to talk about the areas where disabled people are being ignored and dismissed specifically with regard to representation in media in order to change the behavior. Disabled people are already doing great work with hashtags like #DisabledAndCute but the onus is also on the everyday consumer and person to demand the same change." This talk is free and open to the public.  #TalksAndArts  #Prindle
