Disability and Citizenship | Introductory Remarks and Keynote Conversation || Radcliffe Institute

The Radcliffe Institute is in the second year of a two-year exploration of the broad theme of local, national, and international citizenship through a series of public and private programs, fellowships, special collections, and exhibitions.

As part of that exploration, this conference, "Disability and Citizenship: Global and Local Perspectives," explores the ways in which contemporary notions of disability are linked to concepts of citizenship and belonging. Leaders in advocacy, education, medicine, and politics consider how ideas of community at the local, national, and international levels affect the understanding of and policies related to disability—and how this has manifested itself, in particular, in higher education.
