“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, May 15th for the fiftieth installment of Dialogues on Disability, the series of interviews that I’m conducting with disabled philosophers and post to BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY on the third Wednesday of each month.
The series is designed to provide a venue for discussion with disabled philosophers about a range of topics, including their philosophical work on disability; the place of philosophy of disability vis-à-vis the discipline and profession; their experiences of institutional discrimination and personal prejudice in philosophy, in particular, and in academia, more generally; resistance to ableism, racism, sexism, and other apparatuses of power; accessibility; and anti-oppressive pedagogy.
In the upcoming, fiftieth installment of the series, I will talk with a disabled philosopher about philosophy of disability and normative ethical theory, disability and the profession, passing and disability, standpoint epistemology and disability, and philosophical inquiry and humility.
If you missed last month’s commemoration of the first four years of the Dialogues on Disability series, you can find it on BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY’s Dialogues on Disability page here.
I acknowledge that the land on which I sit to conduct these interviews is the traditional territory of the Haudensaunee and Anishnaabeg, covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and directly adjacent to Haldiman Treaty territory. I offer these interviews with respect and in the spirit of reconciliation.
