Welcome to Disability at Duke, a website organizing student and faculty efforts for disability justice and pedagogy.
These pages will help you explore opportunities for Duke students and faculty interested in Disability Studies and the Health Humanities.
A Duke TODAY article from 2015, “Using Humanities to Improve Healthcare,” provides background and context for our ongoing efforts to create an inclusive culture, accessible learning environments, and academic opportunities that integrate a humanistic social justice perspective with approaches to health and policy.
As we enter the 2018-2019 school year, we have a lot to look forward to!
- Duke Disability Alliance is kicking off a year of activism with our fall event, Disability Activism and Allyship!
- The Disability and Access Initiative and the Health Humanities Lab are exploring curricular possibilities, starting with a lunchtime seminar on October 4, and building up to our Disability in the Disciplines conference April 25-26!
