When most people think about blind folks, two ideas rarely come up: sex and history. So what happens when the two come together?
Cathy Kudlick will talk about this very thing by introducing you to people from the past who wrote about sexuality and struggled with thorny questions. Who should marry? Who should divorce? Do blind people have any "special aptitudes" when it comes to sex? And how do they deal with low expectations or - maybe even worse - high expectations regarding morality?
You'll meet people from the 1800s and 1900s who Cathy discovered hidden in archives in France and the United States.
Cathy Kudlick teaches history and directs the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University. For more information about Cathy and the work that she does please visit this link.
