Composing Disability @ George Washington University

Riva Lehrer's "At 54" (2012) and another of her pieces (two copies of each, in this collage), given to the CD con for their use.

Yesterday and the day before we attended the Composing Disability: Diagnosis, Interrupted symposium / conference at my partner Julia McCrossin's alma mater The George Washington University.

"This conference will take as its focus the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (2013) by examining the fraught relationship between the diagnostic work of the medical industry and the embodied lives of disabled people. The conference will conclude on Friday evening with an intimate group of DC-based poets and performers reading disability-themed poetry.  Featured speakers include Ellen Forney, Ann Cvetkovich, and Katie Rose Guest Pryal."
