The purpose of this project is to re-imagine “access” as an intersectional process that centers race, ethnicity, disability, class, gender, and sexuality. Drawing upon community-based and interdisciplinary points of view, the presentation on the Transformative Access Project introduces innovative methods of gathering, researching, and making in the service of justice at all scales.
Speaker: Nic Flores, Ph.D., Assistant Professor at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign
