This two-hour interactive lecture is intended for both graduate and undergraduate students interested in deepening their understanding regarding issues of accessibility within higher education institutions. The lecture offers an opportunity for students to become familiar with and reflect on how dominant cultural understandings of embodied difference, including common medical and pathological views of disability, intersect and interact with markers of race, class, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and citizenship.
With this in mind, the lecture zeroes in on how pathological notions of embodied difference often inform remedial approaches to inclusion as opposed to overall institutional access to and participation in every aspect of university life. Finally, the lecture offers some tools and resources whereby students can organize collectively in order to unsettle and re-imagine access through the lenses of solidarity and mutual aid.
