This one-day symposium features curator Amanda Cachia along with four Disability Studies scholars from Canada and the United States discussing their work in the context of the exhibition Automatisme Ambulatoire: Hysteria, Imitation, Performance. Recognizing that our society imposes certain norms and expectations on bodies, language, and movement, this symposium explores ways to challenge, question, and undermine such norms as a means of welcoming the unexpected and reclaiming space for all bodies.

Organized by Jane Dryden, Department of Philosophy and the Owens Art Gallery in partnership with the Centre for Canadian Studies, Mount Allison University.

Presenters include Amanda Cachia, Eliza Chandler, Kelly Fritsch, Alyson Patsavas, Joshua St. Pierre
