We will be meeting from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at Temple University's new TECH Center, 1801 N. 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122 [phone ahead for further information, 267 334-2710; TECH Center Info Map ]
This will be a social and educational event where we get to know more about the Disability Studies Program at Temple University, chat about current events and discuss the various activities we might want to undertake this year. Members will report on disability studies-related events from the summer, before screening a new DVD on disability and the arts by Chicagoans Sharon Snyder and David Mitchell.
Everyone is welcome to come early for pizza and refreshments at 5:00 pm in the Faculty Breakout Room. Please let us know if you need any accommodations. We will make sure there is at least one vegetarian pizza. The Tech Center has a perfectly sized breakout room for our group. We will meet you in the entrance lobby or you can ask directions to the room - on the first floor, down the hallway to the right. Contact the organizers if you need help with directions or have any other accommodation requests.
