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.
