The College of Literature, Science, and the Arts (LSA) at the University of Michigan is excited to

DIALOGUES ON DISABILITY

Please join the Discrimination and Disadvantage blog on the third Wednesday of each month (8 a.m. EST) for Dialogues on Disability, the series of interviews that Shelley Tremain is conducting with disabled philosophers. The series is designed to provide a public venue for discussion with disabled philosophers about a range of topics, including their philosophical work on disability; the place of philosophy of disability vis-à-vis the discipline and profession; their experiences of institutional discrimination and personal prejudice in philosophy, in particular, and in academia, in general; resistance to ableism; accessibility; and anti-oppressive pedagogy.

To read the notices for interviews and the interviews posted thus far, go here: http://philosophycommons.typepad.com/disability_and_disadvanta/dialogues-on-disability/

If you would like to nominate someone to be interviewed (self-nominations are welcomed!), please write to Shelley Tremain at s.tremain@yahoo.ca.
