Unpacking Ableism in Our Lives: A Workshop on Developing a Disability Studies Lens
A workshop on why and how we should develop a disability studies framework for understanding the world around us and our own lives. We ask that participants read the Lateral forum on critical disability studies before the workshop, consisting of three short essays by Julie Avril Minich, Sami Schalk, and Jina B. Kim.
This event is part of the Mellon-Sawyer “Suffer Well” Seminar Series and is made possible by generous support from the Mellon Foundation. The Sawyer Seminar is a yearlong series that will offer lectures, symposia and presentations from invited speakers that explore human suffering in its various forms and to develop future scholarly projects that confront directly the place of suffering in human experience.
