Critical Conversations: Disability, Accessibility, and Race

CSREA - Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America
, 130

Critical Conversations, one of CSREA’s signature discussion series, invites scholars to explore a central topic through the lens of race. Events in this series have covered issues spanning key topics from public health to education. 

This event will be presented both in-person and virtually. No matter how you choose to join us, please register to attend.

This event will have both audio captioning and ASL interpreting. For those joining in person at IBES, screens on either side of the stage will display captions and a video feed of a virtual ASL interpreter. Those joining on Zoom will be able to view captions throughout the presentation as subtitles and/or view the ASL interpreter’s video feed alongside the in-room livestream.

Critical Conversations: Disability, Accessibility, and Race

At the intersections of marginalized identities, overlapping injustices show themselves to be roots of the same tree. In this roundtable discussion, faculty and past CSREA fellows reflect on the nuanced complexities of how issues of disability, accessibility, and race coalesce in society. This event is presented in partnership with the Disability Studies Working Group at the Cogut Institute for Humanities.
