About this Event
The School of Art is pleased welcome scholar J.T. Eisenhauer Richardson to the spring Visiting Lecture Series on March 30. The virtual lecture is free and open to the public.
J.T. Eisenhauer Richardson is an Associate Professor in the Arts Administration, Education, and Policy Department at The Ohio State University. Richardson’s current research explores agential realism, materiality, language, and space through neurodivergent sensory and social experience. Richardson considers the construct of normalcy through trans*/crip/(neuro)queer poetics, crip technoscience, and disability justice. Dr. Richardson’s publications include academic scholarship, poetry, and creative nonfiction appearing in numerous books and journals, including Studies in Art Education, Disability Studies Quarterly, International Review of Qualitative Research, and the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies. Dr. Richardson’s recent publications include “Museum Education for Disability Justice and Liberatory Access,” co-authored with Dr. Dana Klethcka and published in Journal of Museum Education and Admission: The Mycelia of Neuroqueer Touch published in Neurodivergence and Architecture.
In this lecture, Dr. jt Eisenhauer Richardson presents Crawl Space, a civic encounter with citizenship language through crip movement, crip time, and sensation. Richardson extends corpus linguistic technology and language datafication to encounter the materiality of language through poetics, performance, sound, and embodied “data wandering.” Richardson’s work considers the aliveness of data and technologies as collaborators rather than tools. Crawl Space emerges from a larger research project examining how the “good citizen” becomes defined through ability, action, engagement, participation, and knowledge. What Richardson describes as arts-based policy research proposes the materiality of language as an additional linguistic and policy register.
