Labor and Disability: No Right to Be Idle
October 24, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Starting in the late 19th century, Americans with disabilities came to be labeled “unproductive citizens.” Before that, disabled people had contributed to homes, farms, and the wage labor market. Rose analyzes the social transformations that barred workers with disabilities from mainstream workplaces, casting them as morally questionable dependents in need of rehabilitation to achieve “self-care” and “self-support.”
All events are free and open to the public but seating is limited. The spaces are wheelchair accessible.
