Disability, Narrative and the Law 
February 16-17, 2006 

Moritz College of Law, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH 
 

________________________________________________________________________

What is the role of personal narrative in effectively advancing the cause of disability rights, whether in individual cases or in arenas of legislation and policy making?

 Keynote address:  Hon. Tony Coelho, Chairman of the Board, The Epilepsy Foundation, and former Member, U.S. House of Representatives 
 
This unique public interdisciplinary conference will draw together researchers from law and the humanities to explore how themes of autonomy and dependency, "normal" and "abnormal," innocence and fault, sameness and difference all play out in legal discussions about disability and in the self-understanding of persons with disabilities. We will also feature outstanding practitioners to analyze how personal experience narratives concerned with disability bear on actual legal practice, how legal arguments get translated back into individuals' accounts of being disabled, and how tensions may arise between the highly individualized, personal experience of disability and the necessity of developing a pragmatic legal definition of disability under relevant statutory and case law. 

The conference is being organized collaboratively by the Center for Interdisciplinary Law and Policy Studies at the Moritz College of Law, The Ohio State University Department of English, the Institute for Collaborative Research and Public Humanities, and the Office of the ADA Coordinator and supported by grants from the Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council, and the Association on Higher Education And Disability.

Through the generosity of our sponsors admission to the conference will be free
