Feminist disability studies and four pillars of modern feminism

In this show, I gave a brief and hurried (but hopefully accessible and informative) overview of feminist disability studies, and of four core pillars of modern feminism: postmodernism, intersectionality, standpoint theory (standpoint/sitpoint epistemology), and queer theory. For those wishing to dig deeper into the subject, here is a link to the entry "Feminist Perspectives on Disability" in the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: This article in the Disability Studies Quarterly opens with a four panel comic that I think captures some of what this conversation is about in a clear and humorous way: And here are links to some of my own undergraduate work (I'm still an undergraduate, fyi), the first to an essay on the complexity of approaching a subject as an "outsider", the second being an annotated bibliography on the field of feminist disability studies, and the third being an introduction and further link to the piece of music I composed that explores the notions raised in feminist disability studies through music: Image: Kirsten Justesen, Sculpture II, 1969
