First Annual Disability Studies Program Lecture

Disability RITES: American Disability Culture and its Impact on U.S. Higher Education

The last three decades have witnessed the evolution of a modern U.S. disability rights movement and the development of a related, burgeoning, distinctive American disability culture. This disability culture has shaped all aspects of American life, including the experience of higher education. Dr. Rosa's presentation examined the ways in which disability culture has transformed our notions of college diversity, of who ought to attend college, and, indeed, the very meaning of college itself.
