Announcing the Society for Disability Studies Speaker & Performer Roster
We invite members to become one of the first SDS Speakers & Performers on our new roster.
In efforts to gather together a robust list of people who often (more than once a year) speak or perform on disability or disability studies related topics —and to further creative ways to also support the Society for Disability Studies—we have created the SDS Speakers and Performers Roster (SDS-SPR).
Many other organizations—academic, corporate, public—have similar speaker’s “bureaus” that promote certain speakers for certain topics. Rather than promote certain speakers, we would like to be able to offer a more comprehensive and equitable “roster” that would then also demonstrate the vibrant and robust work that people are doing “on the ground” in our field, Disability Studies. We imagine that organizations and universities who are looking for good disability/disability studies speakers or performers to fit their own programming needs and goals might then be able to make use of the SDS-SPR—and too, that many of us working in these fields might have a further resource that lets us know the new and ongoing work of our colleagues.
