Keynote by Jina B. Kim and Sami Schalk
“Integrating Race, Transforming Feminist Disability Studies.”
What would feminist disability studies look like if it were grounded in feminist of color theory? In this talk, we demonstrate how feminist of color writing, theory, and activism can offer new approaches and sites of analysis for feminist disability studies, advancing a framework that we call feminist-of-color disability studies. Feminist-of-color disability studies is an intellectual, theoretical, and political project that simultaneously acknowledges existing critical race work in feminist disability studies, claims work in feminist of color scholarship not recognized as disability studies, and sets forth an agenda to transform feminist disability studies by drawing attention to how its unacknowledged whiteness has shaped the boundaries and methods of the field thus far.
