Who should attend?

Now in its 17th year, the Disability Studies in Education Conference celebrates the intersectionality of disability studies with multiple areas of education and inclusion. This conference is for individuals who want to become better teachers, professionals, or activists for educating, engaging with, and advocating for people who have disabilities with a specific focus on early childhood through postsecondary educational settings. This conference facilitates dialog among people who have disabilities, professionals, students, parents, and others in order to share  multiple perspectives around many topics relating to disability studies. Hearing directly from parents, advocates, and individuals who identify as having a disability will allow for a more inclusive and engaging educational environment that will meet the needs of students with disabilities and continue our society’s journey from a deficit (medical) model to one that celebrates all learners using a social model of understanding disability.

Why attend the conference?

The 2017 Disability Studies in Education Conference will look at disability studies from three intersecting perspectives: Inclusion, Universal Design for Learning, and American Indian education. Participants and presenters will explore this diverse set of questions:

  • How can we acknowledge and ground ourselves through opportunities to promote inclusive educational practices? Who does inclusion benefit?
  • What openings—and barriers—does a Universal Design for Learning approach offer education?
  • How can understanding American Indian education support disability studies’ scholarship regarding schools?
  • How can stirrings and wonderings across these three strands build powerful, creative educational approaches in a time when schools are becoming increasingly rigid in structure and overshadowed by racism? What do we need to know, do, and explore in order to change the field of education?

Conference keynote presentations and breakout sessions will align with one or more of the following strands:

What do Universal Design for Learning (UDL) approaches offer all students, from P12 through higher education? What are principle strategies and resources for creating systemic UDL opportunities for all students? How can UDL address political and ethical issues in an increasingly polarizing educational environment? How can we build socially just, morally courageous school systems, that reject current institutional biases and violences, from the ground up?

What is the history of American Indian education and the scholarship that surrounds it? What are exemplars, and emerging educational practices, of American Indian education created by and for American Indians? How can a robust, emerging American Indian education movement oppose systemic oppression and colonialist ideologies?

How and where can disability scholarship and research take on pointedly activist roles? What can new, post-empirical research methods offer Disability Studies in Education? What is the role of disability art in Disability Studies in Education? What does the future research of Disability Studies in Education look like, for example: queer, crip, and mad methodologies? What does it mean to bring a DisCrit (Disability Studies and Critical Race Theory) lens to education?
