(dis)ability: the intersection of feminism, queer and disability comes to campus on October 18 and 19 | The Wanderer Online

On October 18 and 19, students and scholars from the University of Alberta, Carleton, York and George Washington (to name only a portion of the crowd) are coming together for a conference entitled “DisAbility?: Queer and Feminist Perspectives, hosted by U of A graduate students Danielle Peers and Lindsay M Earles.

In a University of Alberta News and Events article by Bryan Alary, Chloe Taylor, one of the organizers of the event, states “This is a chance to explore how the connections between the queer and feminist movements have shifted or have not shifted in terms of the ways that they can help us account for the systems of oppression that underlie disability.” There’s sure to be plenty of stimulating discussion over the two-day event, so set some time aside from midterms and do your best to catch part of it.
