Intersections and Independence: Thirteenth Annual Multiple Perspectives on Access Inclusion & Disability Conference
Ohio State University, Columbus Campus
April 16th - 17th, 2013
The theme for the thirteenth annual Multiple Perspectives Conference, Intersections & Independence continues our exploration of how the environment, the human condition and invention interact to define and redefine disability. The program at Multiple Perspectives is intentionally broad, bringing together diverse presenters and participants and bridging typical roles, identities and boundaries (individual experience, research, education, employment, service, advocacy, business, government, sexual orientation, gender, race, ethnicity….)
Presentations should provide an opportunity to step back from the daily demands, reflect on the rich interdependence of our identities and environments, and serve as a catalyst to transform our understanding in to daily actions that support excellence and equity. [Typical sessions are 90 minutes.]
Review of proposals will be ongoing. Some presentations will be accepted early; final decisions will be in March of 2013. Proposals may be submitted by e-mail to ADA-OSU@osu.edu . In the body of the e-mail or as an attachment (Word, Word Perfect, TXT, or RTF formats). Proposals must include:
• Names and (as appropriate) titles and institutions/employers for each presenter.
• Contact information (phone, mailing address, and e-mail) if there is more than one presenter please indicate one individual as the lead presenter.
• Title of Presentation (12 words or less)
• Short Description (30 words or less)
• Full Description (700 words or less)
Please describe the content, focus and desired outcomes for the presentation using these questions as a guide:
• What is the format of the presentation (Lecture, Panel, Discussion, Poster, Performance, Other)?
• What are your three main goals for the presentation?
• What will your participants learn?
• Who is the intended audience (educators, employers, businesses, advocates, students, consumers, researchers, or other)?
• How familiar should the audience be with the topic (beginner, intermediate, advanced)?
The Multiple Perspectives Conference is supported by the generosity of the Ethel Louise Armstrong Foundation Endowment Fund, the Ohio State University Office of Diversity And Inclusion and annual sponsors.
The full conference fees will be waived and lunch provided for presenters of accepted proposals. Presenters are responsible for their own travel and lodging.
