Disability Studies: Cultural Geographies without Hierarchy (University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez)
March 12, 2015 @ 8:00 am - March 13, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
The College English Association—Caribbean Chapter, a gathering of scholar-teachers in English, welcomes proposals for presentations (20-minute papers) for our 2015 annual conference which will be held at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez on 12-13 March 2015. The topic is Disability Studies.
This conference looks at Horizontal Cultural Geography as an objective of Disability Study. Using a broad definition of “Ability,” this scholarly meeting will examine tracts from Literature, Linguistics, the Arts, Philosophy, and other Humanistic disciplines, investigating how writers and artists use aesthetics to construct meaning and conceptualize Dis/Abilities. In doing so, papers may examine the many social and economic, psychological and physiological, political and historical forces that influence, and sometimes constrain, our senses of Dis/Ability.
All accepted presenters are required to become members of the Caribbean Chapter of the College English Association. Conference registration and lunch is included in the membership fee. For more information, please visit:
