Popular music and disability: different embodiments and voices from rock & roll onwards
Regent Street Cinema, 307 Regent Street, London, W1B 2UW
In this lecture, UEA's Prof George McKay will draw on his work over the past decade looking at ways in which disability is represented and explored, performed and sung about in popular music. From rock and roll onwards, there has been a fear and fascination with the out-of-control body – there has always been ‘a whole lot of shaking going on’. From freaks to punks and beyond, pop has accommodated different embodiments and voices, even fetishised them. Warning: contains fascinating videos and music extracts.
