“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
Whether you are a regular reader/listener of BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY or discovered this blog only recently, I invite you to join me this coming Wednesday for the fifty-fourth installment of Dialogues on Disability, the series of interviews that I’m conducting with disabled philosophers and post here 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; 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 installment of the series, I will talk to a disabled philosopher about science and math magnet schools, fatness and philosophy, size and inaccessibility, fat-shaming, and much, much more.
