UEA London Lectures 2019

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.

Can't make it to the event? The UEA London Lectures will be streamed live via the UEA Alumni Association Facebook page, and will be available to view on the UEA YouTube channel the following week.
