Lecture: Critical Access Studies


Thursday, November 12, 2020, 7:30pm to 9:00pm


Harvard Graduate School of Design—Online

In this talk, Aimi Hamraie (Associate Professor of Medicine, Health, & Society and American Studies at Vanderbilt University) will discuss the emerging field of “Critical Access Studies,” which engages with the methodologies, epistemologies, and political commitments of accessibility from the perspectives of Disability Justice and disability culture. Using historical and contemporary examples, Aimi will illustrate the difference that critical perspectives on disability—including intersectional perspectives—can make for architects seeking to understand design with, by, and for disabled people.
