This week's Geo-Politics of Disability lecture at TU

The Institute on Disabilities at Temple University features a new 2008 - 2009 lecture series, The Geo-Politics of Disability. Our lecture in September, by Robert McRuer, was a great success. Our speaker this month will be Sumi Colligan, Professor of Cultural Anthropology, Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts.

"Conceiving Social Justice: Disability Rights Discourse and Practice in an Israeli Setting": Professor Colligan examines ways in which national ideology, a climate of militarism, the penetration of neoliberalism, and the global circulation of human rights discourses shape and constrain contemporary conceptions, strategies, and struggles.

Date and Time: Wednesday, October 15, 2008, from 12 noon to 1:30 pm
Location: 1810 Conference Room, 1810 Liacouras Walk
On Temple University's Main Campus, Philadelphia, PA
