"Disability Studies: A History" Conference

Friday, March 31, 2017 - 6:00pm

“Disability Studies: A History” will bring together activists, scholars, and artists working across different disciplines to reflect on the history of an emerging field, which—since its early activist origins in the 1960s—has gained an institutional presence in academia. We have asked speakers to engage with a key question:  as disability studies gains greater institutional foothold in university spaces, what productive tensions emerge between advocacy, policy, and scholarship?
