Pop Culture Portrayal Of Disability: Students' Analysis

Time: 12 am to 1:30 pm

Contact: ODS Staff · ods@loyno.edu · 504-865-2990

Analysis led by student members of the Disability Awareness and Justice Alliance.

The depiction of disability in pop-culture plays a major role in molding the public’s perception of people with disabilities. While much progress has been made in the way people with disabilities are described in pop-culture, literature, and other forms of communication, there is still some distance to go to ensure that language describing disability is respectful and keeps pace with other social reforms. Join your peers and members of the ODS-SAC to analyze portrayals of disability in pop culture and literature, and to discuss how these reflect, or do not reflect, the true reality of certain physical and mental disabilities.

Unmasking Brain Injury

Contact: ODS Staff · ods@loyno.edu · 504-865-2990

Location: Gallery Room A in Dana Center

Art Exhibit from Wednesday, October 4th through Friday, October 13th.

Introduction by Vicki Vega, Associate Dean, College of Music and Fine Arts and Professor of Music Therapy.

This traveling art project engages the general population with those who have brain injury, both in the struggles and successes they encounter. Each mask has been painted by a survivor or caretaker in Louisiana explaining the emotions they feel living with brain injury. “There’s a story behind every mask and behind every mask there’s a person, a person that’s been touched by brain injury.” Loyola is proud to be the first official exhibition venue for this fascinating and moving mask exhibit.
