The Drink Salon for Technology and Ethics is a bi-monthly speaker series, which explores how technology interacts with different aspects of our lives. Each month the Salon addresses a new theme ranging from music to food. This month's Salon is focused on disability and was curated by Tasha Chemel. The event is free, but we ask that you RSVP.

Curatorial Statement
In the disability community, there are debates around cure—should we accept ourselves as we are, or should we use technology to augment our senses and enhance our bodies?

Do the benefits of new, potentially life-changing technologies and treatments outweigh the risk that society will demand that we make use of them, so that we will become “normal"?

What is “normal” anyway, and how is technology causing this definition to shift, not just for those of us with disabilities, but for all people?
