Disability Studies

This working group fosters interdisciplinary collaboration on disability-related topics. Our meetings generally comprise open and informal discussion of pre-circulated readings, films, or current events relevant to the disability community and its advocates. Past conversations have explored themes of labor, law, sexuality, and popular media, and we are excited to expand our scope. We acknowledge that conceptions and classifications of disability are culturally constructed and historically contingent. Therefore, we impose no monolithic definition of disability and instead explore diverse sensory, physical, developmental, and psychological variations. All members of the Yale community are welcome; please inform us of any accessibility requests so we may better include everyone.
