Redefining Disability Book Launch Webinar

Mar. 11, 2022 — DENTON — Join the Center for Faculty Excellence and Disability Services for Students for a book launch webinar on Wednesday, March 23 at 5 p.m.

The roundtable discussion will feature several authors from Redefining Disability, including TWU’s own Dr. Paul Bones, assistant professor in sociology and Dr. Vanessa Ellison, who recently earned her doctoral degree from TWU in sociology. Additional speakers include: Aurora Berger, The Newton School; Katherine O’Connell, Precision; and Cole Sorensen; Minnesota Disability Support Alternatives. 

During the webinar, the authors will share their expertise and experiences with disability in life, education, employment and beyond. The free webinar will be available via zoom. No advance registration is required. 

Redefining Disability features all disabled authors and creators. By combining traditional academic works with personal reflections, graphic art, and poetry, the volume centers disability by drawing from the experiences and expertise of disabled individuals. The authors address a variety of disabilities, including sensory, chronic pain, mobility, developmental disorders and mental illness. 

The book challenges the outsider-dominated approach to disability by centering the disabled experience. 

Copies of the book can be purchased at Amazon and  Barnes & Noble.
