A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Watch this award-winning documentary on the disability rights movement. Ages 17+.

    This is an online program. The film will be livestreamed via Zoom. Register by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    HOW TO WATCH
    You can watch the livestream of the film from 5:30-7:30pm via Zoom or watch independently using your own Netflix account. ASL interpretation and Closed Captioning will be provided.

    ABOUT THE FILM
    Down the road from Woodstock, a revolution blossomed at a ramshackle summer camp for teenagers with disabilities, transforming their lives and igniting a landmark movement.

    In the early 1970s, teenagers with disabilities faced a future shaped by isolation, discrimination and institutionalization. Camp Jened, a camp "for the handicapped" in the Catskills, exploded those confines. Jened was their freewheeling Utopia, a place with summertime sports, smoking and makeout sessions awaiting everyone, and campers who felt fulfilled as human beings. Their bonds endured as they migrated West to Berkeley, California - a promised land for a growing and diverse disability community - where friends from Camp Jened realized that disruption and unity might secure life-changing accessibility for millions. Co-directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nicole Newnham and film mixer and former camper Jim LeBrecht, this joyous and exuberant documentary arrives the same year as the 30th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, at a time when the country's largest minority group still battles daily for the freedom to exist.

    CRIP CAMP: A DISABILITY REVOLUTION is executive produced by President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama; Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan; Oscar nominee Howard Gertler and Ray Lifchez, Jonathan Logan and Patty Quillin; LeBrecht, Newnham and Sara Bolder produce.

    Explore this provocative form of nonfiction comics art and mode of reportage.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    The rapid dissemination of inaccurate information and fake news across multiple communication platforms has eroded public faith in traditional media, creating a climate of skepticism with regard to such basic notions as journalistic integrity and expert testimony. In the face of these dilemmas, comics journalism has emerged as a powerful alternative mode of reportage. Practitioners in this field re-assert the ethical value of truth-telling, while at the same time foregrounding and reframing the inevitably subjective dimensions involved in any act of witnessing through the use of hand-drawn visual narrative. Without shying away from vital questions about the role of representation in the perception of reality, comics journalists are nevertheless telling stories that urgently need to be told—in an immediate and accessible way. In her talk, Prof. Kelp-Stebbins will explore this provocative form of nonfiction comics art.

    Kate Kelp-Stebbins (she/her/hers) is Assistant Professor of English and Associate Director of Comics and Cartoon Studies at the University of Oregon. Her work examines comics and visual media as tools for rethinking world literature and remapping transnational media flows. Her work has been published in Feminist Media Histories, Media Fields, Studies in Comics, and anthologies including The Oxford Handbook of Comic Book Studies, Comics Studies Here and Now, and The Comics of Alison Bechdel. Her book, How Comics Travel: Translation, Publication, Radical Literacies, is in press with the Ohio State University Press, and uses comparative methodology to analyze world economies of comics through the apertures of translation, cultural imperialism, and print cultures. Her research and teaching practices are informed by feminist, anti-racist, and anticolonial theories. She received her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature in 2014 from UC Santa Barbara.
