Reading with Julie Maybee: Making and Unmaking Disability
Start Date: 4/20/2021Start Time: 1:00 PM
End Date: 4/20/2021End Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:

In this brave new theoretical approach to human physicality, Julie E. Maybee traces societal constructions of disability and impairment through Western history along three dimensions of embodiment: the personal body, the interpersonal body, and the institutional body. Each dimension has played a part in defining people as disabled and impaired in terms of employment, healthcare, education, and social and political roles.

Because impairment and disability have been constructed along all three of these bodies, unmaking disability and making the future accessible will require restructuring Western institutions, including capitalism, changing how social roles are assigned, and transforming our deepest beliefs about impairment and disability to reconstruct people as capable. Ultimately, Maybee suggests, unmaking disability will require remaking our world.

Julie Maybee is Chair of the Philosophy Department, Professor of Philosophy, and the Director of the Interdisciplinary Disabilities Studies Program at Lehman College.
