Event Details

A workshop for UW employees with disability studies professor Margaret Price.

Drawing upon the recently published "Resource Guide for Welcoming Faculty with Mental Disabilities" sponsored by the Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion, Price presents concrete strategies for making university spaces more accessible for employees with mental disabilities.

Although her research analysis was based on faculty members, she draws attention to information and strategies that are applicable to all UW employees as well as students. The overall aim of the workshop is to offer specific tactics for creating a "culture of access," as it has been described by Elizabeth Brewer, Cynthia Selfe, and Melanie Yergeau, in university space.

Don't miss the public talk, Moving Together: Toward a Theory of Crip Spacetime, February 13 at 3:00 pm.
