Our third and final installment of our series on Disability Studies (DS), the "Cripping UCSB" Distinguished Faculty Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Tanya Titchkosky, Professor in Social Justice Education at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the the University of Toronto. Her talk is entitled "Humanity’s Edge: Encounters though Disability Studies” and will take place November 10, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm PST on Zoom.
Dr. Titchkosky has extensively taught and written in the area of disability studies for more than 20 years. Her approach to Disability Studies (DS) is informed by cultural studies and interpretive sociology supported by Black, feminist, queer studies of a phenomenological ilk. She is concerened with how human lives are made meaningful and how University work and life produces particularly limited and limiting conceptions of disability and humanity. Some of her books include Disability, Self, and Society (2003), as well as, Reading and Writing Disability Differently (2007) and The Question of Access: Disability, Space, Meaning (2011). For a selection of more recent publications, please visit her faculty website from the University of Toronto.
The event will take place virtually, on Zoom, and have an ASL interpreter. All are welcome to attend.
Dr. Titchkosky's talk is the final installment of the "Cripping UCSB" series in DS, and is curated by Shanna Killeen and Sven Spieker. This event is co-sponsored by the GCLR and The Disability Studies Initiative (DSI) Research Focus Group of the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center (IHC) at UCSB.
