Ep 46: Disability Studies


Today’s topic is disability studies featuring a discussion with two scholars, Dr. Sami Schalk and Dr. Subini Annamma. Disability studies is an interdisciplinary field that looks at disability from multiple perspectives and approaches. Sami is the author of Bodyminds Reimagined: (Dis)ability, Race, and Gender in Black Women’s Speculative Fiction and Subini is the author of The Pedagogy of Pathologization: Dis/abled Girls of Color in the School-prison Nexus. Both Subini and Sami will talk about their experiences writing their books, the future of disability studies, and what excites them about teaching and generating knowledge as academics.
