Prof Lennard J. Davis, University of Illinois at Chicago
This seminar reviews the history of the disabled poor in Western Art and considers what the viewers' emotional response to such depictions would be. Prof Davis is interested in the repeated tropes of disability and poverty over time and how the viewers' responses might have changed.

He has written or edited over 20 books, some of which are the most influential in the field.
