TDS Reading Group Winter Schedule

Please mark your calendars for the winter quarter meetings of the Transdisciplinary Disability Studies Reading Group! Please note that the times and details for some events are still tentative, and that we have listed a few other disability studies and disability studies adjacent events of interest not organized by this group. Reminders and suggested readings will be circulated just before each event. We are also open to other ideas, or facilitating scheduling for meetings related to long term disability studies programmatic planning. Please continue to use the TDS email list to circulate other announcements of interest!
