Sight, Visibility, and Disability in American Literature

Presiding Officer: 
Kimberly Drake, Scripps College

This panel explores the conference theme of sight, vision, and visibility as it operates in American literature and visual media by and about people with disabilities. How can disability studies concepts intervene interpretively in literature preoccupied by enlightenment, transcendence, and disembodiment; mobility, virility, and contamination; and racial/class (in)visibility?
