The Future of Disability Studies through the Intersections is part of a webinar series on ‘Feminist Perspectives on Disability’

About this Event

This FSA event will consider the productive intersections between disability studies/activism and feminist studies/activism. Through a panel discussion, our speakers will consider how discourses around disability might intersect with gender, sex, race and class, and the material consequences of these on the lived experiences of particular groups; the ways in which disability scholarship/activism might further feminism; and how disability studies/activism can continue to grow and develop.

We have an exciting line up of speakers:

Micha Frazer-Caroll (The Independent)

Cavyn Mitchell (Brunel University London)

Burgandi Rakosha (University of Leeds)

Jess Waggoner (University of Wisconsin-Madison)

This event will have live captions and/or a BSL interpreter. This event is inclusive of all disabilities, please contact us on with any specific requests.

This event will be held on Zoom and a link and password will be circulated to guests before the event.

The event is free to attend but spaces are limited. We also ask that attendees consider kindly donating £1, £3 or £5 or becoming a member of the FSA, as your generosity or membership helps to ensure that we can continue our work as a not for profit network in this increasingly difficult socio-economic climate.
