Event description

Description

Students, faculty, staff, community members and other interested stakeholders are invited to Access4All, a symposium and interactive presentation space focused on accessibility solutions.

The event is organized and led by students in GSWS 391: Resistant Bodies. Informed by disability studies, transgender studies, gender studies, sexuality studies, feminist studies, cultural studies, critical race theory, poverty studies, feminist care ethics and more, the event examines substantive topics such as: biomedical interventions to "prevent" disability, including reproductive justice concerns; geographies and institutional spaces of disability and accessibility; war, violence and militarization and their contribution to producing disabled bodies; the politics of "disfigurement" and cyborg futurity; masculinity, sport and disability including the celebrity "supercrip"; intersections of disability studies with transgender studies, queer studies and fat studies; and social movements, coalition building and resistance.

Lunch will be provided.

The event is free and open to all, but please register. Parking is available for a fee in the West Broad Street, West Main Street and West Cary Street parking decks. If special accommodations are needed, or to register offline, please call the VCU Libraries Events Office at (804) 828-0593.
