Call for Presentations at the 2016 Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion and Disability

January 05, 2016

 July 2015 was the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act; November 2015 marked the 20th Anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act in Britain; and December 2016 will be the 10th anniversary of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.  Multiple Perspectives is an ongoing exploration of disability, a conversation including many voices and reflecting perspectives gained through experience and research; theory and practice; and arts and sciences.  Preference will be given to presentations that encourage discussions across the typical social, political, and disciplinary boundaries; connect the individual to local, national and international approaches; or consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity.  The conference will take place on The Ohio State University’s Columbus Campus on April 13-14, 2016.   Proposals due January 18, 2016.  For more information, please go to: http://ada.osu.edu/conferences.htm.
