---> Zoom Registration:


Kim Q. Hall is Professor of Philosophy at Appalachian State University. Her areas of research interests include Feminist Theory, Disability Studies, Continental Philosophy, Queer Theory, Critical Race Theory, Ethics, and Environmental Philosophy.  She is editor of Feminist Disability Studies (Indiana University Press, 2011) and New Conversations in Feminist Disability Studies (a 2015 special issue of the journal Hypatia) and co-editor of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Feminist Philosophy.

About the series: Even as disability has many meanings and contexts, narratives about disability are often narrow, reducing to celebrations of individual heroism or laments about lost experiences.  These reductive stories fail to do justice either to the experiences of disabled individuals or the structural conditions of their lives.  But if stories about disability can narrow our understanding, they can also expand them, creating strategies both to imagine this world and to move toward a more just one. Join us for a series of conversations about the stories we tell about disability, and how constructing new, overlapping stories helps us to imagine a more inclusive, survivable world.  Previous sessions with Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Joel Michael Reynolds, and Ashley Shew are available on the Center's YouTube Channel.
