When: April 8 & 9, 2019


Society For Disability Studies Pre-conference including an SDS Dance/DISCO Ball on April 7, 2019


Multiple Perspectives is an ongoing exploration of disability in context.  A conversation including many voices reflecting perspectives gained through lived experience and research; theory and practice, art and science.  This year’s theme, Continuing the Journey from Noblesse Oblige to Social Justice, marks the 40th anniversary of Southeastern Community College v. Davis.  Argued on April 23, 1979 before the U.S. Supreme Court this was a case of first impression that set the pattern for understanding disability rights under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and helped shape the American’s With Disabilities Act.

Preference will be given to proposals that encourage discussions across the typical social, political, and disciplinary boundaries; connect individuals to local, national or international communities; or consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity.
