Professor Obourn Publishes Article on Disability Studies
The Department of Women and Gender Studies Chair Milo Obourn discusses the intersection of race, gender, and disability in his book.
Department of Women and Gender Studies Chair Milo Obourn published "Disabled Futures: A Framework for Radical Inclusion" with Temple University Press.
According to its description, "Disabled Futures" makes an important intervention in disability studies by taking an intersectional approach to race, gender, and disability. Milo Obourn reads disability studies, gender and sexuality studies, and critical race studies to develop a framework for addressing inequity. They theorize the concept of “racialized disgender” — to describe the ways in which racialization and gendering are social processes with disabling effects — thereby offering a new avenue for understanding race, gender, and disability as mutually constitutive.
