Disability Studies as a Social Justice Field

Disability Studies is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that recognizes and celebrates people with disabilities as a cultural group.  Birthed out of the disability rights movement, the field includes myriad forms of artistic expression, important academic inquiries into the lived experiences and cultural constructions of the disabled, and vital political activism.

We’ll discuss some of the key features of this exciting, socially transformative field

and enjoy a sample of artistic and political expressions arising from it.
