“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

“Shelley’s interviews are incisive and impactful inside and outside of the academy.” —Public Philosophy Network
Please join me here later this month for the sixty-fifth 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 this upcoming installment of the series, I talk to a Black disabled philosopher about philosophy, experience, and social change; disabled Black men, identity, and philosophy of race/Africana philosophy; literature as a vehicle to understand philosophy; and much, much more!

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. In solidarity with the Caledonia occupation.
