Temple University’s Fifth Annual Disability and Change Symposium

Monday, March 26, 2018
8:30 AM – 4:00 PM

Organized by the Institute on Disabilities at Temple, with support from the Interdisciplinary Faculty Council on Disabilities, the Disability and Change Symposium is a one-day, interdisciplinary conference focusing on cultural equity and disability.

The event is free, accessible and open to the public. Registration is required.

Symposium Highlights

The “end of disability” has been a long-standing mantra for medicine and often repudiated by some disability studies scholars and others who question the “end” to mean extermination or erasure. Our 5th Annual Disability & Change Symposium asks us to consider whether the development of technologies such as bionics, implants, and smart technologies brings something new to the debate.

Come listen to interdisciplinary panels of speakers discuss the historic, philosophical/ethical, policy, applied rehabilitative, science/engineering, and first-person perspectives.
