Disability Studies and Architectural History

October 29, 2020

Disability Studies and Architectural History
Thursday, October 29, 2020
2:00–3:30 PM Central
Free and open to the public

Scholars of disability studies analyze the meanings attached to disability, including the devaluation of disabled bodies by popular culture, medicine, public institutions and architecture. Architectural norms restrict perceptions of the body as well as the lived experience of bodies in space. Presenters and participants will consider key concepts in research and pedagogical methods for integrating histories of disability and efforts to pursue disability justice in architecture. The discussion highlights the importance of disability activism as it relates to design.

This is not a technical explication of the Americans with Disabilities Act, but rather an open-ended opportunity to consider bodies, medicine, stigma, and space against the backdrop of the current global health emergency.

Gail Dubrow, professor of architecture and history at University of Minnesota, will moderate the discussion.

Participants:
  • Annmarie Adams, "Design for Dementia"
  • Gail Dubrow, Laura Leppink, and Sarah Pawlicki, "Disability Justice and Public History: The Case of Thompson Memorial Hall, Saint Paul, MN"
  • Aimi Hamraie, "Knowing, Making, and Disability"
  • Perri Meldon, "Disability Rights and the National Park Service"
