Lennard J. Davis

The starting point of this encounter is the stare, the astonished stare- which so often carries with it strangeness or prejudice, astonishment or indifference. This gaze has advantages and disadvantages: on the one hand, it can be the result of careful analysis, on the other, it can turn into a rude gesture against people - for example, people with disabilities, the poor, or those persecuted due to their gender choices. What happens when people stare?

Lennard J. Davis, professor at the School of Arts and Sciences and Disability and Human Development at the University of Chicago, Illinois, is one of the leading researchers in the field of disability, with several published books.
