We Belong To One Another: Disability and Family Making
Ableism frames disability as a “family problem,” in which disability is a tragedy for nondisabled family members and a disqualifying factor when disabled people want to build families of their own. But, to the contrary, disability can create new opportunities for flourishing by challenging traditional notions of what family is and should be. In this webinar, disabled writers, activists, and scholars will discuss their own models of disabled kinship, featuring Jina Kim, Sami Schalk, and Jess Waggoner on queercrip doulaing, Mia Mingus on access intimacy, and Leah Smith and Joseph Stramondo on parenting disability gain.
