Fondren Library Accessibility Committee and Rice University’s Disability Support Services
Invite you to attend:
This talk examines L. Frank Baum's fiction about the land of Oz and the literary and cinematic legacies of this Oz mythology using the lens of Disability Studies. Although disability is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind when reading the Oz narratives, it is remarkable how often disability unquestionably and powerfully appears as a thematic current running throughout the tradition. The talk explores how each text within the tradition picks up the theme anew to construct its own particular meaning.
