About / À propos de la CDSA-ACÉH
The Canadian Disability Studies Association-Association canadienne d’études sur le handicap held its first annual meeting at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg in May 2004. The association built the foundation for our organization based on the by-laws adopted on June 1, 2005 at CDSA-ACÉH’s 2nd Annual Conference at the University of Western Ontario in London. That year CDSA-ACÉH became a “provisional” member association of the Canadian Federation of Humanities and Social Sciences.
CDSA-ACÉH is a multi-disciplinary, non-profit organization that promotes the exploration of disability through research, publication, artistic production, teaching, and general development. Disability Studies critically examines issues related to the interplay between disability and various policies, practices, cultural myths, and ideologies. Through our work we seek to enhance the understanding of disability across cultures and historical periods, to promote greater awareness of the experiences of people with disabilities, and to contribute to positive social change.
CDSA-ACÉH is dedicated to:
Providing a forum for the exchange of ideas and scholarship regarding disability;
Networking among individual members, community groups, and other academic organizations; and
Maintaining and building a commitment to a scholarship that remains connected to, informed by, and in ongoing dialogue with community and consumer organizations and agencies.
