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.

Guiding Questions:

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?

Access or any other questions, please contact Prof. tanya.titchkosky@utoronto.ca 416-978-0451
