American University Symposium on Disability, Access, and Teaching

Wednesday, April 10, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM

American University's Butler Board Room (Butler Pavillon, 6th Floor)
4400 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016

Sponsored by: American University Critical Race, Gender & Culture Studies Collaborative (CRGC)


“Disability, Access, and Teaching: A One-Day Symposium” will bring together American University's campus and local communities to better understand and foster accessible, inclusive learning environments. While a number of faculty members at American University focus their research on disability, and student and faculty resource centers engage with questions of disability, it is rare for students, staff, faculty, and administrators to come together for a sustained conversation about accessible pedagogy and disability theory. We aim to facilitate precisely that conversation.

We offer this symposium with the hope of creating a community for students, faculty, staff, and administration around a shared sense of identity so that people with disabilities will feel a stronger sense of belonging at AU. We also want to foster a greater awareness for the work already being done at AU and provide space to let people build relationships and networks. The symposium is free and actively invites all AU members, DC community members and disability studies faculty and graduate students at nearby universities.

Place: American University's Butler Board Room (Butler Pavillon, 6th Fl.) - 4400 Massachusetts Ave., NW
