Sept 25 Feminist Disability Studies in Transnational Context

"Empire's Other Other: Feminist Disability Studies in Transnational Context," which is part of the Annan IGC's
Equity, Justice, and Difference at Home and Abroad series.

The talk will take place on Tuesday,
September 25th, at 4:45 p.m. in Davis Court, Macalester College.

Nirmala Erevelles is Professor of Social and Cultural Studies in Education at the University of Alabama. Her teaching and research interests lie in the areas of disability studies, critical race theory, transnational feminism, sociology of education, and postcolonial studies. Specifically, her research focuses on the unruly, messy, unpredictable and taboo body – a habitual outcast in educational (and social) contexts.

Erevelles has published articles in the American Educational Research Journal, Educational Theory, Studies in Education and Philosophy, the Journal of Curriculum Studies, Teachers College Record, Disability & Society, Disability Studies Quarterly, & the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies, among others. Her book, Disability and Difference in Global Contexts: Towards a Transformative Body Politic, was published by Palgrave in November 2012.
