CRTLE and Disability Studies in Partnership Everyday Ableism: Unpacking Disability Stereotypes and Microaggressions

April 21 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Presenter and Facilitator:

Amanda Kraus, Ph.D., President of the Association of Higher Education and Disability

When we understand disability in a context of social justice and ableism, a cultural experience very much influenced by dynamics of power and privilege, we can begin to unpack the many ways disabled people are targets of bias and microaggressions. This workshop will use relevant research to identify pervasive disability stereotypes and microaggressions and explore about how these ideas shape the disability experience and inform our personal and professional behaviors and attitudes. In order to affect sustained access and inclusion on college and university campuses, we must recognize the pervasiveness of these ideas and reframe our work and attitudes to align with
social justice values.

Accessibility information and questions: ASL interpretation provided along with AI captions in Teams; contact Dr. Sarah Rose (srose@uta.edu) or Mikila Salazar (mikila.salazar@uta.edu) with questions and for additional disability-related access requests, including CART. This virtual event is free and open to the public.
