Medievalists with Disabilities Roundtable IMC 2023 | Call for Papers, deadline – 16 September 2022
After five successful roundtables bringing up issues around disability in Higher Education, we propose another roundtable for IMC 2023. We invite abstracts for 5 minute talks for the roundtable. We understand disability in the broadest sense, incorporating visible and invisible impairments, chronic illness and mental health, to name but a few.
Topics might include:
- Your own circumstances in a HE institution
- Pinpointing a particular issue that needs addressing
- Highlighting an example of good practice in your own institution
- Issues of intersectionality: how disability might interact with other factors that have an impact on marginalized people e.g. gender, class, sexuality, and/or race
You can participate in a roundtable as well as presenting a paper, so please do consider submitting an abstract for this roundtable if you’re already planning to present. You don’t have to identify as disabled to participate, for example if you’d like to share an example of good practice, but priority will be given to disabled scholars.
Please submit a title for your talk as well as a brief summary (no more than 150 words) to Alex Lee (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 16 September 2022.
We are also seeking a chair for the session, so please let me know if you’d like that role.
