The Multiple Perspectives conference is an ongoing exploration of disability as a reflection of the human condition seen through multiple lenses (theory, discipline, social constructs, personal experience, shared experience...). Presentations should encourage conversations across the typical divisions, boundaries and disciplines. Proposers are encouraged to consider parallels, distinctions and intersections with race, gender and ethnicity. This year's conference will celebrate the 25th anniversary of the ADA -out progress and the journey ahead. What have we learned? Where are we going? What are the important questions for the next 25 years?
