Minorities and Philosophy MLK Day Lecture: Desiree Valentine (Marquette)
Critical Disability Methodologies and Processes of Racialization
Monday, January 18, 2021
This talk explores the connections between Critical Disability Studies and Critical Philosophy of Race. Recently, there has been significant growth in scholarship identifying and addressing the whiteness of critical disability studies and the ableism of critical race studies. This talk will investigate the mutual distancing strategies implicit in studies across race and disability as well as explore the intersection of these two social markers as lived. Drawing from examples in law, health and medicine, and carcerality, I show how race and disability ought not be understood as disparate phenomena, but as a nexus through which we can reconceive opportunities for developing liberatory responses to entrenched and co-constituting oppressions.
