| | Comments (0)

From the SDS mailing list:

The Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Disability Studies at the University of Illinois at Chicago is accepting applications from prospective students for Fall 2006. The deadline for receipt of full applications is January 1, 2006. UIC's Disability Studies Ph.D. program promotes the development of new scholarly models for understanding disability. Part of this intellectual approach involves the education of disabled and non-disabled academicians, researchers, policy experts, and clinicians who will join with disabled people in the community as active challengers of oppressive institutions and environments. The program examines how addressing disability in its full complexity can promote the full participation, self- determination, and equal citizenship of people with disabilities in society.

UIC's Disability Studies program recognizes disability as a complex phenomenon existing at the intersection of human differences and social values. The program is open to scholars committed to studying how disability "works" and what can be done to lessen the negative social and personal consequences of disability. This includes the study of what disability reveals about society and humanity as well as how it affects people who fall both within and outside of the category. Scholars from any discipline can engage in disability studies. A particular strength of the UIC Disability Studies program is access to diverse faculty mentors and resources in the social sciences, the humanities, and the health fields. Students in the program conduct research across impairment, clinical, social, cultural, ethical, and policy perspectives.
