Tuesday, February 14, 2017 — 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM EST

A workshop for UW employees with disability studies professor Margaret Price.

Drawing upon the recently published "Resource Guide for Welcoming Faculty with Mental Disabilities" sponsored by the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion, Price presents concrete strategies for making university spaces more accessible for employees with mental disabilities.

Monday, February 13, 2017 — 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM EST

How do disabled faculty react to and reshape the academy?

Disability studies (DS) has reached a point that Price calls a "crisis of precarity." This crisis of precarity is a state in which neoliberal logics of wealth, privilege, and power are replicated within DS, doing material violence to some members of the discipline, while the discipline itself continues to flourish. Price outlines the ways DS has reached this crisis of precarity, and in response, offers a different way of thinking about disability, a theory of crip spacetime.

Monday, February 6, 2017 — 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM EST

Speaker: Jennifer Clapp (School of Environment, Resources and Sustainability)
