20th Annual Conference

20th Annual Multiple Perspectives Conference: Building Blocks for the Future

April 6-7, 2020

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act the Ohio State University’s new ADA Coordinator held the first Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion & Disability conference. Conceived as a place for our community to gather and explore and learn about disability as a construct, an identity, and as a shared experience Multiple Perspectives became an ongoing conversation between lived experience and research; theory and practice; pragmatics and aspiration.  The theme of the first Multiple Perspectives conference, The Next 10 years, invited a look ahead from the first decade of the ADA.  As we look forward to the thirtieth anniversary of the ADA, I invite you to reflect on the themes from past Multiple Perspectives conferences as Building Blocks for the Future of Access, Inclusion & Disability.
