04 Aug Disability Studies Initiative
The Disability Studies Initiative RFG engages with the Medical Humanities and strives to destigmatize impairment and illness by examining the political, social, and cultural constructions of disability as a political identity and literatures, cultures, and histories so as to shed light on current ideas of disability within broad contexts. Bringing together faculty, students, and community members, we not only explore Disability Studies as an interdisciplinary and intersectional field of scholarship but also use our humanistic knowledge to support grassroots and institutional disability activist projects on campus and beyond.
