Intersections and Independence:
The Thirteenth Annual Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion
& Disability:
April 16 - 17, 2013
Held on The Ohio State University's Columbus Campus

This year's theme focuses presenters on the frictions, synergies
and synthesis that occur at the boundaries of multiple roles,
identities and perspectives within individuals and between them. Some
possibilities to consider:
* Exploration the simultaneous influences of models of disability
(charity, medical, legal, social...) on individual experience, norms or
systems change;
* Universal Design, independence and identity;
* How disability influences gender, ethnic and racial identities
or how they influence disability identity development;
* Representations of disability.
* Variations in privilege and oppression across identities and
* Locating disability: person, place or attitude.
* Trends in law, education, business, public policy, ...

Preference will be given to presentations that encourage
conversations across the typical boundaries (care and independence,
education and employment, research and practice, business and
government, rights and charity ...) or focus broadly on difference by
incorporating parallels and contrasts with race, gender and ethnicity.
