Event Description

Join us for an exploration of sensory perception, identity, and accessibility hosted by Exceptions, an MSU-based literary and art journal that showcases the perspectives of visually impaired and blind individuals. Keynote offered by renowned disabilities scholar Dr. Georginia Kleege. Her collection of personal essays, Sight Unseen, offers an autobiographical account of Kleege’s own blindness alongside a cultural critique of how blindness is represented in literature, film, and language. Visit Exceptions online for a full symposium schedule. Participants are invited to join us at 5pm for the Exceptions: Accessible Art exhibition featuring student-made art and literature to experience with your eyes and hands.
