Welcome

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.

Duke does not currently have a Center for Disability and Diversity, nor a formal curricular program in Critical Disability Studies, but we have very active student and faculty groups working toward these goals.

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.
