Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion & Disability<http://ada.osu.edu/conferences.htm>

April 13 - 14, 2016

The Ohio State University's Columbus Campus

This past July marked the 25th anniversary of the Americans With Disabilities Act; November the 20th Anniversary of the Disability Discrimination Act in Brittan; and December 2016 will be the 10th anniversary of the U.N. Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.

"It is time to move beyond the letter of the law to the spirit of the law; to shift our focus from redressing human and environmental problems through remedial design to preventing problems through holistic design."

Leslie Kanes Weisman

Multiple Perspectives is an ongoing exploration of disability, a conversation including many voices and reflecting perspectives gained through experience and research; theory and practice, arts and sciences.

Preference will be given to presentations that encourage discussions across the typical social, political, and disciplinary boundaries; connect the individual to local, national and international approaches; or consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity.

Past programs and conference updates as they become available can be found at: http://ada.osu.edu/conferences.htm.
