Course Promotion

The CDSC promotes upcoming courses with disability content that are offered on any of the UMN campuses  (Crookston, Duluth, Morris, Rochester, Twin Cities). If you will be teaching a course in the next semester or year enriched with disability perspectives, contact the CDSC to have your course shared on our website. 

Affiliation Process

The CDSC is working to build capacities in critical disability studies at the University of Minnesota, on the way towards creating a program that will ideally work across the UMN campuses. We invite faculty and instructors from across the UMN system who are currently teaching in critical disability studies or in nearby fields (critical race and ethnic studies, disability studies, feminist studies) who wish to teach in CDS to affiliate.

Classes taught by affiliates will be promoted by the CDSC and affiliates will be featured on the CDSC website as potential mentors for students working on projects in critical disability studies. Please submit the following to the Critical Disability Studies Collective ([email protected]): 

  1. Your CV
  2. A statement about how your research, teaching, and/or other scholarly activities relate to intersectional critical disability studies. 
  3. Please provide information regarding CDS courses you are teaching that you wish to be promoted through the CDSC network.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Erin Durban ([email protected]).
