Sabrina Durso is a Ph.D. student specializing in Disability Studies and Medical Humanities. Specifically, in literature, Sabrina exposes the falseness of stereotypes and poor representations of the disabled. She has presented her work at the Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the Michigan Academy of Science, Arts, and Letters Conference at Alma College, and twice at the Graduate Student Conference at Oakland University. During her MA, Sabrina served as the Digital Content Manager on the Marguerite Hicks Project, which aims to understand the provenance of a rare book collection of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century feminist literature owned by Hicks, a low-vision scholar during the 20th century. Sabrina has a deep passion for inclusive education practices that support underrepresented populations. Most recently, she helped numerous ESL students while she served as an adjunct English instructor at Oakland Community College and as a tutor for the Oakland Literacy Council.
