SAVE THE DATES FOR THE APRIL 12-13, 2017, MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES CONFERENCE
July, 2015, was the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act; November, 2015, marked the 20th Anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act in Britain; and December, 2016, will be the 10th anniversary of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.
Multiple Perspectives is an ongoing exploration of disability, a conversation including many voices and reflecting perspectives gained through experience and research; theory and practice; and arts and sciences.
Preference will be given to presentations that encourage discussions across the typical social, political, and disciplinary boundaries; connect the individual to local, national and international approaches; or 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.
