This past February, Professor Jaipreet Virdi participated in an episode of Fields of the Future, a podcast hosted by the Bard Graduate Center. The podcast amplifies the voices and highlights the work of scholars, artists, and writers who are injecting new narratives into object-centered thinking.
In the episode, “Disability Objects in the Archives,” Elizabeth Guffey speaks to Virdi about disability studies, her “path-breaking” approach to research, and the inclusive and collaborative opportunities social media allows scholars. Virdi’s work centers the people who used and adapted disability objects throughout history. Through rich and detailed examples Virdi illuminates the hidden stories behind these objects.
