Description

Critical Disability Studies and its Critical Influencers -- PROGRAM

29th of July 2019 – OISE, U of T - 252 Bloor Street West, Toronto, 5th Floor, M5S 1V6

OISE 5-220 and 5-210 (Lounge rooms just past accessible washroom, north off the elevator).

How are Critical Indigenous Studies, Queer Studies, and Black Studies influencing CDS work today?

Let us try to "...expand the definition of consciousness beyond human/animal sentience by locating it in the world-a living agential co-responsiveness to the field itself; where the eye first opens."

Dolleen Tisawii'ashii Manning, 2017, "The Murmuration of Birds," p. 162.

“A critical disability studies scholar asks difficult questions about the possibility of representation and accountability of scholarship and activism to all disabled people. And this new-found criticality questions some of the starting assumptions…” Dan Goodley, 2018, “The Dis/Ability Complex,” 6.

Group Discussion throughout. Refreshments Provided.

Working at the intersection of many disciplines as well as various forms of critical studies can potentially make Critical Disability Studies (CDS) a vibrant yet precarious endeavour in and out of universities today. How is your work connected to and influenced by these critical orientations? What are the risks, possibilities, and for whom does it matter? What is the place of CDS in relation to other areas of scholarship and activism, such as, queer, disabled, Black, Indigenous, and feminist politics? What innovative research methodological provocations happen through a turn to CDS?

What considerations require our urgent attention?
