Disability Studies RFG

In celebration of Black History Month, the Disability Studies Initiative invites you to discuss two essays that shed light on the material intersections of disability and race: Josh Lukin’s short article, “Disability and Blackness” (2006), which calls for the consideration of Black experiences in the history of disability and its artistic representations, and Michelle Jarman’s “Race and Disability in US Literature” (2018), which takes its framework from Black feminist theories and calls for relational approaches to disability.

Register for the Zoom attendance link here and write to to receive copies of both papers.

Sponsored by the IHC’s Disability Studies Initiative Research Focus Group, the Comparative Literature Program, and the Graduate Center for Literary Research
