Chapter Two: Unfeeling Masks

Olivia talks about another cautionary tale with a disabled protagonist: Octavia E. Butler’s Parables series. “I’ll adapt where I must, take what opportunities I can find or make, hang on, gather students, and teach.” Plus, Emily Sara discusses the importance of having disabled educators in academia. So be it! See to it!
