Seminar Announcement: Able-ism and the Question of the Human, 30th July, University of Toronto, Canada

“Able-ism and the Question of the Human” promises to provoke questions regarding the meaning of “human” that can be revealed in everyday assumptions of ability. How, for example, do medical, legal, or educational forms of engaging those who are typically excluded do more than confirm the normative order of able-ism or, worse, reproducing human degradation?

This free, public, accessible seminar brings us together with Drs. Dan Goodley from Sheffield University, UK; James Overboe, Waterloo University; Anne McGuire, New College, University Toronto along with Rinaldo Walcott and Tanya Titchkosky from OISE with Lead Discussant Dr Kirsty Liddiard, Post-Doc fellow from Ryerson University.

Free, Open, ASL and Refreshments provided
OISE, above St. George Subway, 252 Bloor Street West,
5th Floor, Room 5-280
