Call for Presentations

"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

The Multiple Perspectives conference is offered to encourage the kind of change suggested by Leslie Kanes Weisman; to expand knowledge, understanding and, community resources through the synergy of collaboration. This year we consider disability as context, even in its absence disability sets a stage for our experience. Join us in exploring

* How is disability experienced across race, religion, gender, age and geography?
* How is disability reflected in work, education, commerce and leisure?
* How can disability transform our environment, culture and politics?

Examine the foundations of access or design an inclusive future by submitting a proposal. Presentations that encourage discussion across the typical social and disciplinary boundaries; connect individuals to local, national or international communities; or consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity will be given a preference.

This Year’s conference will have a virtual component, In-person participation will be determined based on safety consideration
