I contributed writing and a photograph to Postdigital Science and Education's Teaching in the Age of Covid-19-One Year Later collective journal article. You can access the article for free here. (Note: There are 40+ authors; the text is long!)

Here's an excerpt of my text:

"The normalization of wanting desperately to return to environments I experience as inaccessible reminds me constantly that I do not belong. Through the lens of the medical model of disability I find myself thinking, ‘I don’t fit in’. Through the lens of the social model of disability I find myself thinking, ‘the site seems unable to recognize ways in which it could welcome and fit itself into the lives of more people more deeply’. I find myself concerned for my students with disabilities, who also must be subjected to righteous claims for the return to an in-person community that may also actively, both implicitly and explicitly, deny core aspects of their personhood through rationalized exclusion.

I did not think it was as bad as it definitely is. When you are disabled and primary aspects of your reality suddenly become social mandates, you learn what folks really think of your lifestyle. People have been judging you in ways you never would have realized. Oddly, this increased access to public perceptions of sickness and health, brought about by the pandemic, has helped me grow as an advocate as it revealed ways of thinking to which I did not previously have access."

I'm so proud of our UIndy Dept. of Art & Design students for the perservance they displayed and strong work they continued to realize in spite of the challenges of Zoom- and online-based schooling, unpredictable conditions, and lack of studio/lab access. You can check out video documentation our 2021 Juried Student Exhibition here. Special thanks to my colleague Nathan Foley; we worked together to conceptualize and pull off our Covid-responsive student exhibition which included an all new, all digital submission process, outdoor projection of the exhibition, and sharing the work via pre-existing on-campus screens.

I provided the cover image for Derek R. Ford's recent publication Inhuman Educations: Jean-François Lyotard, Pedagogy, Thought available from Brill | Sense.

The image, P, 9 Times, Always A Little Different, is an extension of work I started about the small slipperinesses always present in attempts to translate and replicate ideas through language during my undergraduate thesis. My interest in this topic grew out of a year spent abroad as a foreign exchange student during high school.
