Welcome to UVA’s Disability Studies Initiative!

We’re a group of faculty from across the university committed to exploring the social and cultural aspects of disability. We believe that disability is a fascinating aspect of human diversity. It’s something we want to learn about and learn from. We bring together a range of scholarly interests and methodologies in an interdisciplinary effort to think about disability in new and interesting ways. We regularly host disability-focused events, so watch this space for updates.
