CALL FOR PAPERS <http://www.flametheband.com/media.cfm>

"We must build a world free of unnecessary barriers,
stereotypes, and discrimination.... policies must be developed,
attitudes must be shaped, and buildings and organizations must be
designed to ensure that everyone has a chance to get the education they
need and live independently as full citizens in their communities."
Barack Obama April 11, 2008

Eleventh Annual
Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion & Disability:

>From Policy to Practice

May 4th and 5th, 2011
on the Ohio State University's Columbus Campus

The Eleventh Annual Multiple Perspectives conference
continues our tradition of exploring disability as both a reflection of
the human condition and the environment seen through the lenses of art,
law, societal and individual experience. Multiple Perspectives reaches
across typical divisions between disciplines and communities focusing on
the intersection of disability with education & employment; scholarship
& service; business & government; religion, race, gender & ethnicity.

Past programs and conference updates as they become
available can be found at: http://ada.osu.edu/conferences.htm.
To be on the mailing list for the conference, send
e-mail to ADA-OSU at osu.edu
Presentations should provide an opportunity for
participants to step back from the daily demands of access and reflect
on tools and strategies needed to transform a commitment to justice and
excellence into that future.
Please Note: Proposals are due November 15th, 2010.
Conference fees will be waived and lunch provided for presenters of
accepted proposals. Presenters are responsible for their own travel and
