Poster of 2019 CDSSA conference

We’re pleased to present our 13th annual conference, Bridging Narratives, taking place on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at York University (HNE, 104 Scholars Walk).

The conference will connect diverse narratives of disability across disciplines, practices, theoretical standpoints, geographies, histories, colonial contexts, and cultures. Presentation topics include Indigenous intersections; disability identities, expressions and representations; the arts, media, literature, and poetics.

We are very excited to announce that our keynote this year will be delivered by Lee Maracle: award-winning author, Traditional Teacher for First Nations House at University of Toronto, and recipient of many teaching and writing awards, including the Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.

Please see the conference program for the full schedule of presentations.
