(Dis)ability Futures and Indigeneity: Critical Epistemologies for Social Change

Oct 22, 2020 4:00 pm 6:00 pm

Lecture by Hilary Weaver, University at Buffalo

Hilary Weaver PortraitIn mainstream societies, disabilities are perceived frequently as deficits, emboldened by values borne out of colonization. This public lecture by Weaver instead draws on traditional indigenous understandings, wisdom, and knowledges to answer vital questions. What can the United States and the rest of the world learn to change our future, by making disabilities and other differences understandable, without applying a deficit model? The future does not need to be as hierarchical as the present.
