Please join me here this coming Wednesday for the next installment of Dialogues on Disability, the acclaimed series of interviews that I’m conducting with disabled philosophers and post to BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY on the third Wednesday of every 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 Dialogues on Disability, I will talk with a disabled philosopher about alienation and isolation, passing as nondisabled, work on Leibniz, naming ableism and inaccessibility, and much, much more.
Links to each of the interviews that I have conducted, from the beginning of the series in April 2015, are archived on the Dialogues on Disability page of BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY here.
I acknowledge that the land on which I sit to conduct these interviews is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabeg, covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and directly adjacent to Haldiman Treaty territory. I offer these interviews with respect and the aim of decolonization.
