Persons with disabilities often are excluded from the mainstream of the society and denied their basic human rights. Discrimination against persons of disability take various forms, ranging from invidious discrimination, such as the denial of educational opportunities, to more subtle forms of discrimination, such as segregation and isolation because of the imposition of physical and social barriers. At the Centre for Accessibility in the Global South, we aim to RESEARCH, RETHINK AND RESPOND to these issues faced by the disabled community, through research, talks and courses.
The R-CubeD webinar series is to renegotiate, extend and open up the academic space to alternative knowledge, and ways of doing research and modes of expression beyond the traditional structures, by providing a platform for diverse stakeholders such as disabled people, researchers from the academia, disabled people’s organizations, activists, corporates, and communities to come together for discussions and debates on what should drive forward the research on disability and technology. It aims to bring theory and practice together while contributing new, critical understandings on disability and the Global South.
