Outing: Grappling with Cure

Speaker: Eli Clare, Author of Brilliant Imperfection: Grappling with Cure

Cure—the deeply held belief that body-minds considered broken need to be fixed—serves many purposes. It saves lives, manipulates lives, and prioritizes some lives over others. It provides comfort, makes profits, justifies violence, and promises resolution to body-mind loss. Join writer and activist Eli Clare as he grapples with this knot of contradictions, maintaining that neither an anti-cure politics nor a pro-cure worldview can account for the messy, complex relationships we have with our body-minds.

This event is part of the School of Public Health's 2016-17 Dean's Speaker Series. It is cosponsored by the UC Berkeley School of Public Health Center of Excellence in Maternal Child Health, the UC Berkeley Disability Studies Program, the Disability Studies Cluster of the Haas institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, and the DSP TRiO Program.

This event is free and open to the public, however please register using this form if you plan to attend. If the event reaches capacity, registered guests will receive priority seating until 10 minutes before the scheduled start of the talk.
