In this webinar lecture and dialogue, Dr. Nario-Redmond, Professor of Psychology and Biomedical Humanities and specializing in stereotyping, prejudice, and disability studies, will discuss why now it is more important than ever to understand and appreciate how disability is being experienced in the 21st Century. She will review her research into the significance of ableism in influencing the identities and well-being of people with disabilities. Dr. Nario-Redmond will also discuss disability culture and its creative and innovative pathways that people with disabilities have taken to reclaim and redefine disability experiences. Finally, she will connect the present to the past in the ways people with disabilities have a long history of instigating social change through collective action.
