LECTURE: THURS. MARCH 19, 1:30 - MDCL ROOM 2232
Disability activists are forwarding a political framework through which disability and ableism can be understood and connected to other forms of oppression and violence. In this lecture, Mingus will talk about the meaning of Disability Justice, the necessity of an intersectional analysis and what solidarity is in this ever-evolving practice we call "liberation."
PANEL: THURS. MARCH 19, 6:30-COUNCIL CHAMBERS, GILMOUR HALL, ROOM 111
Many grassroots activists with disabilities have moved beyond individualized rights models to a disability justice movement that recognizes the interconnectedness and interdependence of all people, with or without disabilities, at the intersections of privilege and oppression. The panel will explore self-determination in terms of community building and disability culture. How does this changing discourse reimagine the experiences of students with disabilities in Western contexts?
