A Final Reflection

 Grace in my Heart, Flowers in my Hair, a Mouthful of Shooting Stars: 

A final personal reflection on Critical Disability Studies: Theory & Practice


And there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears.
And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
Get over your hill and see what you find there,
With grace in your heart and flowers in your hair.

-Mumford & Sons, "After the Storm"

Communicating Culture: What Neuroscientists Need to Know about the Neurodiversity Movement

Realized that originally I posted this accidentally as a book page and now I can't tag it/ mark it as a web event, so here is my midterm essay again!

“Although biomedical platforms are efficient at driving translational research forward, they are not passive and transparent, but actively entrench assumptions that may be deeply contested.”

Disruptive Symbiosis: A Reflection on Language and Representation

It’s hard to even know where to begin this reflection, the BioArt project seems like a fantastic the culmination of four years of scientific coursework, two formal courses in disability studies and disability studies, and lots of informative and thought-provoking conversations that have happened over the course of my time at Haverford.

Representing Ability

Hey guys!

My project works better if seen in a presentation format and I could not technologically figure out how to put it on serendip. Therefore, I have sent everyone the link to it but I am posting here so if you all want to comment on it, you can do so on this post as if it were the presentation. I will also try to attach it to this just in case but I want to make sure you can view the videos. 

Sorry for the inconvenience!



Lady with a Beard

The Bearded Lady


There’s no way they could see them. I felt each and every hair that coated my lower chin. They felt prickly and I wondered whether they sprang up individually, one thick black hair at a time. If I wear my hair down then they definitely won’t see. I must be the only one able to see them. It’s like what I learned in psychology class - you see your imperfections more than others. Maybe you can feel them more than others, too.
