Due to Covid-19 (the Corona-Virus) both the Disability Seminar 4 with Tyler Zoanni and the Filmscreening will be postponed until a date that later will be determined. 

Rethinking Disability organizes an interdisciplinary, public seminar titled ‘Appearances of Disability’ in collaboration with the Dutch Coalition on Disability and Development, Disability Studies in the Netherlands and anthropologist Tyler Zoanni. 

Zoanni works from an anthropological perspective on (cognitive) disability in Uganda. After the presentation, there will be a response of Alice Schippers, director and researcher of Disability Studies in The Netherlands.

In the evening a public film screening will be held (see below), that can be well combined with the seminar.

About the speaker

He also wrote the article ‘Appearances of Disability and Christianity in Uganda‘.
