Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds conference Call for Proposals - due January 6th, 2016

Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds: Navigating Our Spaces, Places, and Histories is the second annual inter-university/college disability conference in Toronto. The Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Conference was initially hosted at Ryerson University in 2012. In 2014, student groups and campus/community activists from Ryerson University, York University, University of Toronto and George Brown College came together to imagine an inter-campus conference that brought together disability community activists, service providers, academics, and everybody in between.

This is the second year of the Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Inter-University Conference. The Theme: The 2016 theme for the Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Conference is Navigating Our Spaces, Places, and Histories. Disability is ever-present within our spaces, places, and histories…but is it evident? This conference will explore the ways that disability exists within discourse, community-building, and lived experience, as well as the many ways disability erasure and resistance have occurred. Join us for a weekend of empowerment, dialogue, and celebration.

The Details:

The Reclaiming Our Bodies & Minds Conference will be hosted on two-half days and one full-day between Friday, March 11th, 2016 and Sunday, March 13th, 2016. Friday, March 11th, 2016 – University of Toronto Saturday, March 12th, 2016 – Ryerson Student Centre, Ryerson University Sunday, March 13th, 2016 – George Brown College.
