Dialogues on Disability

“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

This page is home to Dialogues on Disability, the acclaimed series of interviews that Shelley Tremain is conducting with disabled philosophers and posts 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.

Links to each of the interviews that Tremain conducts and posts to BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY from January 2019 onward will be posted on this page. In addition, each of the forthcoming interviews will be posted on Tremain’s academia.edu page during the week following its publication on BIOPOLITICAL PHILOSOPHY.

An archive of the Dialogues on Disability interviews that Tremain conducted from April 2015-December 2018 can be found on the Discrimination and Disadvantage blog (which is no longer in use) and on Tremain’s academia.edu page.
