Thursday, January 13, 2011 at 8:00pm SLT (US Pacific)

The Sojourner Auditorium, Virtual Ability Island

ZiplockedGoldfish is a student of Media at a major US university. This presentation is based on the findings of her research as an in-world anthropologist; in which she questioned the representation of disability in virtual worlds – through the lens of personal, social, and cultural expectations. She seeks to define ‘virtual disability’ and to debunk the falsities regarding virtual disabilities expressed in the writings of a predominant Second Life theorist, Tom Boellstorff.
