    Aimi Hamraie, “Critical Access Studies”

    7:30pm to 9:00pm

    Location: 

    Zoom meeting

    Thirty years after the passage of the Americans With Disabilities Act, much of the built environment remains inaccessible to disabled people.

This field, which I term “Access Studies,” would benefit from greater engagement with the concepts, practices, and political commitments of critical disability studies.

    National Day of Mourning

    12:00pm to 5:00pm

    Location: 

    Coles Hill, Plymouth, MA
