Abstract

Ableism is a system of processes and practices that vary according to time, context and location that forms understandings and tactics of interaction, exclusion, comportment of self as they pertain to humanisation and corresponding hierarchicalisation of life. In this talk I will discuss the complexity of ableist relations in order to refresh the conversation by drawing upon unfamiliar, non-western knowledges to open a new space and lift the dust (aggiornamento) of thinking about human devaluation and development of social capital for minoritised groups.

Keynote Speaker

Dr. Fiona Kumari Campbell is Professor of Disability and Ableism Studies at the School of Education and Social Work, University of Dundee, Scotland. Beside her teaching and research activities, she has also multiple other activist engagements including but not limited to: Member of the Society of Legal Scholars, Board member, Inclusion Scotland, Co-Lead of the Peripheries Scholarship & Research Theme (ESW), Feminist Researchers & Teaching Network (UoD) as well as Adjunct Professor in Disability Studies, Department of Disability Studies, Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka as well as Fellowship of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

After the talk by Prof. Fiona Kumari Campbell, participants have also the opportunity to actively engage in discussions with the speaker (Q & A session).
