The 13th Annual CLGS Georgia Harkness Lecture with Professor Julia Watts Belser (ONLINE)
"Queer Crip Revelation: Disability Dance, Jewish Text, and the Sacred Potency of Difference."

In this ONLINE lecture, Julia Watts Belser probes the embodied ethics and spiritual insights of Claire Cunningham’s Thank You Very Much, a contemporary dance performance that brings queer disability culture into provocative conversation with the glittering world of Elvis tribute artists.

Using disability dance to surface unexpected liberatory possibility within biblical and rabbinic Jewish texts, the talk bears witness the violence arrayed against queer and disabled lives and also claims the sacred potency of queer disability joy—illuminating the revelatory power of the choice to unfurl the brilliance of our embodied difference.
