Dis/ability and the Visual: A Service Learning Class

Throughout each Spring semester, I work in collaboration with Professor Lynn Whitney on a service learning course which invites BGSU students to collaboratively make photographs with partners from Wood Lane, a local agency that works primarily with people with disabilities.The semester culminates in a collaboratively curated show of the pictures.The students and their partners build relationships and are challenged to re/consider dominant conceptions of disability and identity. As context, I present photographic histories, media and cultural theory material for the students to apply as they take part in the course.I am involved in print critiques in which we challenge the students to thoughtfully consider aesthetics and approach in relation to their eventual audience, the general public.
