Call for Programs: Annual Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion, and Disability Conference

Submitted by Ruth Montz,

Call for Programs: Annual Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion and Disability Conference
   Deadline to apply: December 3 at 11:59 p.m.
This year’s Multiple Perspectives conference reflects on the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Signed by President Nixon on September 26, 1973, Section 504 announced a wider conception of “We the People.” The last forty-nine years our paradigms have been pushed from medical models toward social models, from accessibility standards toward universal design, from accommodation toward social justice. As we approach the 50th anniversary of Section 504, what will the next fifty years bring?
   Multiple Perspective’s ongoing exploration of disability as a reflection of the human condition. A lived experience seen through multiple lenses of identities and across the social contexts of work, education and leisure; law and medicine; government and family. This year's theme is Widening the Circle: Access, Universal Design and Beyond.
   Preference will be given to presentations that explore parallels, distinctions, lessons and impacts of disability across and within identity groups and models. Proposals can be submitted via our webform:
