Disability Futurity: Call for Seminar Proposals
Centre for Culture and Disability Studies, Liverpool Hope University
In association with Carleton University’s Disability Research Group, Canada
Disability futurity refers to the disability of the future; the future of disability. The seminar series will initiate and investigate multiple theories, representations, and concepts around this theme. What does an aging population mean for disability identity? If a growing number of people are expected to experience disability, how should the experiential knowledge of disabled people in the present be regarded and rendered? What are the implications of these non-normative ways of knowing? These and related questions are to be explored in an international seminar series hosted by the CCDS in collaboration with Carleton University’s Disability Research Group.
If you are interested in giving a seminar in the interdisciplinary series, please submit a proposal (200 words max) and a short bio to the CCDS ([log in to unmask]) on or before 7 January, 2019. Please indicate in your proposal any preference to travel to Ottawa, Canada or Liverpool, UK.
