If you’re invested in equitable education, this month’s webinar is for you. During this session presented by Angela M. Carter and Katie Loop, participants will learn how to identify and challenge the particular ways that ableism shows up in higher education — also known as academic ableism.
Angela Carter is the co-founder of the Critical Disability Studies Collective. Her PhD. research and teaching areas of focus include feminist and queer disability studies, mental health, pedagogy, and U.S. cultural studies. Angela is also a multiply-disabled educator-scholar.
Katie Loop is the Program Specialist for CEHD America Reads, a literacy based tutoring program at the University which partners with community sites across the Twin Cities to provide accessible and free tutoring. Additionally they are also an OED facilitator on topics such as Addressing Implicit Bias in the Search and Selection Processes, Identifying and Creating Accessibility and Equity During the Hiring Process, Removing Barriers and Creating Access, and Ableism and Disability Justice. Katie is also a queer disabled educator.
