“I have read almost all of your interviews and they are always wonderful. … I am really looking forward to the next installment of Dialogues on Disability.” — Adrian Piper
“The Dialogues on Disability platform … has been very helpful to me, especially at times where I did not feel I belong in the world of academic philosophy.” — Disabled graduate student
Please join me here on Wednesday, January 16th at 8 a.m. EST for the forty-sixth installment of Dialogues on Disability, the series of interviews that I have conducted with disabled philosophers since April 2015 and henceforth will post to BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY on the third Wednesday of each month. The series is designed to provide a public venue for discussion with disabled philosophers about a range of topics, including their philosophical work on disability; their experiences of institutional discrimination and personal prejudice in philosophy in particular and academia more generally; the place of philosophy of disability vis-à-vis the discipline and profession; resistance to ableism, racism, sexism, and other apparatuses of power; accessibility; and anti-oppressive pedagogy.
In this upcoming installment of the series, I will talk with a disabled philosopher about the graduate school application process, transition to graduate school, Minorities and Philosophy (MAP), and much, much more!
