Ethel Louise Armstrong 2012 Student Poster Competition Award Recipients

“This year’s focus on the Humanities was amazing. I have to admit to being a bit skeptical before the conference, but Steve Kuusisto's Thursday’s keynote (Marilyn Bartlett) and having the chance to hear LeDerick Horne gave me a new set of experiences that enriched my understanding of research”. 2012 participant comment

The theme for the 2012 Multiple Perspectives conference “Experience Understood in Image, Poetry, Narrative, and Research” inspired twenty-three concurrent sessions, three public lectures and the annual student student poster competition.

Hosted by the Ohio State University’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the ADA Coordinator’s Office, with generous support from the Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation, the Multiple Perspectives conference brought together a diverse audience of over 200 participants to discuss the full spectrum of disability research issues and experiences for its twelfth year.
