    Online Professional Development: 'Talking With Pictures': Photovoice - June 2-10, 2018
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2018) Leong, Genesis
    University of Hawaii at Manoa, Center on Disability Studies Professional Development summer course is now available. Register through UH Outreach College at http://bit.ly/CDSphoto class start on 6/2/2018. For 25 years, researchers, programs, and activists have used “Photovoice” to engage people with disabilities, patients, youth, families and communities in representing their lives, point of view, and experience using photos, video, art, and writing. Photovoice is a participatory approach to understanding and communication that encourages dialogue and mutual learning. It generates powerful data on health, community, and real lives. It engages participants, professionals, and the public in identifying opportunities for change. It fosters knowledge and awareness on issues of importance to families, communities, and policymakers alike, and helps people to feel their ‘voices’ are heard. In this interactive online course (a combination of live Zoom sessions and asynchronous work) based on her award-winning in-person workshop, social scientist Laura Lorenz explores the foundations of Photovoice and shares photos from projects she has led in the US and South Africa since 2001 -- with teenage girls, youth living with HIV/AIDS, and adult brain injury survivors. For this course, disabilities from brain injury will serve as a running theme and focus throughout. Readings, presentations, and between-session assignments support person-centered learning and provide hands-on experience working with images and text. By the end of this training, participants will have a solid understanding of a popular approach to participatory health and community assessment, its ethical considerations, approaches to interpreting photos and text, and strategies for outreach. Participants will leave this course with hands-on experience and insights on adapting Photovoice to care, programming, and research intended to engage and benefit people with disabilities, patients, youth, families, and communities. Seminar Topics Include Achieving fair process in healthcare Applying Photovoice to clinical work, research, and community engagement Adapting Photovoice to different abilities and disabilities Interpreting Photovoice data (photos, captions) and options for wider sharing Developing a Photovoice plan for use in clinical care, programming, and research Who Should Attend Mental Health Professionals and Social Workers (Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced Levels) Other audiences that will find this course useful: Evaluators, researchers, rehabilitation clinicians Activists, artists, and community organizations Class Details Saturday, June 2: 8:00 – 10:00 AM Foundations of Photovoice Sunday, June 3: 8:00 – 10:00 AM Photovoice Ethics Wednesday, June 6: 4:00 – 5:30 PM Working with Photos & Captions Saturday, June 9: 8:00 – 10:00 AM Reaching Audiences Sunday, June 10: 8:00 – 9:30 AM Planning Your Photovoice Project or Activity Location: Online (Hawaii Standard Time) Fees: $250 (Cancellation deadline: May 25, 2018) Continuing Education (CE) fee: $50 For information about continuing education credit, please see www.lslorenz.com(link is external) Laura Lorenz, PhD, MEd, is a social scientist using innovative approaches to engage patients, youth, and communities in health. A major focus in her work has been collaborating with interdisciplinary teams on programming and research to improve quality of life and function for people with disabilities from brain injury.

    Working to Feel Better or Feeling Better to Work? Discourses of Wellbeing in Austerity Reality TV
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2018) Sandle, Rowan Voirrey ; Day, Katy ; Muskett, Tom
    By focusing on discourses within the ‘cultural economy’ of reality TV, the following considers the wider positioning of waged labor as essential for mental health during a period of austerity. The findings suggest that discourses of mental health and wellbeing construct figures of a ‘good’ welfare-recipient as one who achieves wellbeing through distancing themselves from the welfare state and progress toward waged work. Framed within the landscape of ‘psycho-politics’, wellbeing and unemployment are arguably entangled to legitimize current welfare policy, placing responsibility on individuals for economic and health security and dissolving concerns over austerity’s systemic impact.

    NoBody’s Perfect: Charm, Willfulness and Resistance
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2018) Tsakiri, Maria
    The purpose of this paper is to discuss the representations of disabled bodies on the basis of Niko von Glasow’s documentary film NoBody’s Perfect. Drawing on disability aesthetics (Siebers, 2006) and the notion of crip killjoys (Johnson & McRuer, 2014), it is argued that representations of crip killjoys and their unruly corporeality offer an aesthetic and political context in which the politics of disgust and resentment can be challenged (Hughes, 2015; Soldatic & Meekosha, 2012).

    Reclaiming the Margins in the Face of the Quantified Self
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2018) Schaffzin, Gabi
    Through the lens of my own experiences with a chronic and painful condition, I consider the ways that quantified self devices and services normalize and classify, creating a new kind of relationship to our medicalized conditions. My project seeks to co-opt these technologies in the service of revealing proprietary and arbitrary translations relied on to make decisions using QS devices.

    My Infectious Encounters as an Autistic Epidemic
    (University of Hawaii at Manoa -- Center on Disability Studies, 2018) Benham, Jessica L.
    In contrast to understanding of Autism as an ugly1 disease requiring a cure, I position myself as autistic epidemic - a repulsively yet beautifully contagious activism and blend my story through a crip’d, queer’d temporality2. Intentionally opaque, I resist a naive economism that disabled bodies must perform normatively, legible labor to be valued. In this age of austerity, autistic peer supports can only partially compensate for the lack of available, affordable services.
