Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion, and Disability
17th Annual Conference
April 12 - 13, 2017
The Ohio State University's Columbus Campus

Celebrate Our Progress And Write Our Future History
15th Annual Conference
April 13 - 14, 2015
Call for Session Proposals

This year’s conference will celebrate the progress we have made and the journey still ahead.  What have we learned?  Where are we going? What are the important questions for the next 25 years?

Multiple Perspectives is an ongoing exploration of disability as a reflection of the human condition seen through multiple lenses (theory, discipline, social constructs, personal experience, shared experience…).  Preference will be given to presentations that encourage conversations across the typical divisions (medical and social, education and employment, research and practice, business and government, rights and charity …) Proposers are encouraged to consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity. 

Past programs and conference updates as they become available can be found at:  http://ada.osu.edu/conferences.htm.

To be on the mailing list for the conference, send e-mail to ADA-OSU@osu.edu
