Accessing Alliances: Disability Studies Across the Curriculum

Thursday, February 22, 2007- Friday, February 23, 2007
Location: Washington, DC

This event will take place at The George Washington University, Marvin Center, 800 21st Street, NW Washingon, DC 20052.

Over the past decade, Disability Studies has increasingly influenced scholarship across the university, particularly in the humanities and social sciences. Displacing a singular medical model for understanding disability, Disability Studies attends to the multiple ways that bodies, abilities, and disabilities have been represented culturally.

This two-day symposium will generate ongoing conversations about how to build Disability Studies alliances between faculty in Disability Studies, professionals in Disability Support Services, and students.

Co-sponsored by the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD), the Office of the Senior Vice President for Student and Academic Support Services, Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, Departments of American Studies, English, History, Philosophy, the University Writing Program, and Women Studies Program.
