Choices and Challenges
Popular culture often depicts disabled people as the recipients of technology - or people who should be hopeful for such development. At this event, we’ll hear from disability community members and allies about different ways we might think about people, technologies, disability, and institutions. The stories we tell are about technology and the human condition. We’ll hear about resistance, pride, optimism, and anger. We seek conversations that take seriously the voices of disabled people in regards to assistive technologies, inclusive education, and accessible environments.
