The Disability Studies program at Eastern Washington University is pleased to host a two-day symposium focusing on the place of Disability Studies principles and disability rights practices within the everyday life of diverse communities and across academic curricula.
While the symposium is open to all sorts of work, we especially invite those addressing how Disability Studies contributes to existing and developing communities and how Disability Studies can benefit professional and practice-based education programs and policy. Submission proposals include, but not limited to, individual papers, panels, workshops, posters, artwork, film, photography, and architecture/design.
This event is free and is open to the public.
Registering is required.
