GSWS Fall Speaker Series

sami_schalkYou are invited to a Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies 2022-23 Visiting Speaker Series event. On December 2, from 11:00am to 12:30pm we will have the pleasure to e-host Professor Sami Schalk from University of Wisconsin-Madison, delivering a talk titled,"Articulating and Enacting Black Disability Politics in the National Black Women's Health Project."

Drawn from the book Black Disability Politics(Duke UP Fall 2022), this talk discusses the history of the National Black Women's Health Project in the 1980s and 1990s arguing that the organization's Black feminist health activism used holistic, culturally-attuned and politicized approaches to health which should be considered an example of Black disability politics.
