Foreign Bodies: Disability and Beauty in Toni Morrison’s Writing

Dr Alice Hall, Université Paris-Diderot, will be presenting this paper at Liverpool Hope University on Wednesday 27 June 2012.

Eden 109, 3.15pm – 4.15pm

Dr Hall writes:

This paper examines the relationship between disability and beauty as a central preoccupation of Toni Morrison’s fictional writing, her critical discourse and her most recent work as a curator. I am interested in how Morrison’s critical writing about race and identity intersects with shifting notions of beauty in her fiction, but also, in turn, how these ideas can provide a conceptual framework for writing about literature and disability in general.

The paper is presented by the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies at Liverpool Hope University.
