The Tobin Siebers Disability Arts and Culture lecture 

Disability Arts and Culture: Collaboration and Improvisation

Professor Petra Kuppers

Date: Tuesday 12th July 2016
Time: 12am – 3pm
Place: EDEN Arbour Room, Liverpool Hope University, UK

In this special guest lecture, Petra Kuppers will discuss arts-based research methods in disability culture, and their place in universities’ ways of knowing and recognizing value. What are the politics and pedagogies of community-engaged creative work in the academy? By drawing on recent work in community arts, conference/symposium organization, publication strategies, and classroom politics, Professor Kuppers will highlight how disability culture values of interdependence, collaboration, and improvisation can structurally influence the work of disability studies.


Petra Kuppers is a disability culture activist, a community performance artist, and Professor of English at the University of Michigan. Her Disability Culture and Community Performance: Find a Strange and Twisted Shape (2011) explores arts-based research methods and her most recent book is Studying Disability Arts and Culture: An Introduction (2014). Other books include Disability and Contemporary Performance: Bodies on Edge (2003), The Scar of Visibility: Medical Performance and Contemporary Art (2007), and Community Performance: An Introduction (2007). 

This special guest lecture is being held in memory of Tobin Siebers. For nearly a decade Professor Siebers served on the JLCDS Editorial Board whose institutional base is in the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies. He reviewed numerous submissions over those years and guest edited a special issue with Dr Alice Hall just before he sadly died in 2015. His work is and will always be some of the most important in the field.

Attendance at The Tobin Siebers Disability Arts and Culture lecture is free (and lunch will be provided) but must be booked on or before June 30 via the online store. 

Note that the University of Michigan Press and the University of Michigan Department of English Language and Literature have announced the second annual Tobin Siebers Prize for Disability Studies in the Humanities: umlib.us/siebers
