IAS Thursdays | Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization, Disability Justice, and Prison Abolition

Leading disability justice and abolitionist scholar Dr. Liat Ben-Mosche will be speaking online on Thursday, October 21, 3:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. 
 
Register here or from the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) website
 
In this roundtable event, Ben-Moshe will discuss her new book, Decarcerating Disability: Deinstitutionalization and Prison Abolition (2020), and the importance of centering disability justice in coalition-building and imagining a world beyond policing, criminalization, and incarceration. 

University of Minnesota colleagues will join to discuss how we might engage with Dr. Ben-Moshe’s coalitional and abolitionist frameworks to promote institutional change here at the University and in the broader community.
 

Presented in partnership with the Institute for Advanced Study, Minnesota Transform: A Just University for Just Futures, Critical Disability Studies Collective, and University of Minnesota Law School.
