On Monday, October 6, 2014, the Doyle Film & Culture Series screened Loving Lampposts. In Loving Lampposts, we witness the debate between the “recovery movement” that prioritizes a search for a cure, and the “neurodiversity movement” movement that seeks to provide support and acceptance for neurodiverse individuals. Lydia Brown (C’15), president of the Washington Metro Disabled Students Collective, led a post-film discussion centered on the controversies in autism explored in the documentary. Brown also discussed plans to develop a Disabilities Cultural Center on campus amidst a recent administration proposal to consolidate the LGBTQ Center, Women’s Center, and CMEA into a single general diversity center.
