Society for Disabilities Conference 2015
Host: Society for Disability Studies
Date: 10-13th June, 2015
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
The program committee of the 28th annual meeting of the Society for Disability Studies invites conference participants to consider the multiple and significant possibilities at the intersections of disability and (getting it) right/s. There are dozens of academic panels, moderated discussions, workshops, performances, and formal and informal social gatherings where SDS members and other conference attendees share ideas and form valuable lasting professional relationships. Disability as/is a civil right, a human right, a social right, an economic right, an educational right, a medical right, a sexual right, an employment right, a voting right, a representational right. All of these, and more. Communities and advocates – locally, nationally, transnationally – have been making efforts to get/gain rights, including recognition, legal and/or cultural; and trying, also, to get it right–to address, analyze, reclaim, revise, redress, recover disability representations in literature, culture, politics, and history.
