Worlds Remade: Inclusion through Engagement with Disability Art
Ware, Linda
International Journal of Inclusive Education, v12 n5-6 p563-583 Sep 2008
This paper revisits the 2007 Disability Studies in Education Conference plenary session, "Using Disability Art in Teaching About Disability: Riva Lehrer, David Mitchell, Sharon Snyder and Linda Ware". The plenary coincided with a group show at The Arts Club of Chicago that featured multimedia works by artists who figure disability experiences into their art. The interdisciplinary panel presentation began with Lehrer's overview of recent paintings and drawings and a screening of "Disability Takes on the Arts", a film by Sharon Snyder and David Mitchell in 2004. The panel concluded with examples that linked these works to enhance teaching about disability in teacher education by Ware, a professor and practitioner. (Contains 8 figures and 5 notes.)
