Back At It


After enjoying a summer with Adam, we are both back at school. Adam has started grade one and I grad school in Critical Disability Studies at York University. We are both busy and happy and man, our plates are deliciously full. I find it hard to complain about being too busy after being in the hospital for ANY length of time!

Henry announced today at a UJA function that I am working on an inclusion initiative with some other very active people in our disability community. I know I keep mentioning it, but I will provide you the first ad next week, I hope.

Critical Disability studies eh.

There's a co-incidence I have just come back from the Disabilities Studies Associations biennual bash at Lancaster Uni where they are starting up there very own research centre.

I was told to be nice to the VC and not heckle him about the Lancaster Six cos they wanted the money.

You will have to read French and Corkers post modern deconstruction of it all, naturally, it was the time the word neurodiversity appeared in print outside the internet.

Just realised the ambiguity of that phrase, French and Corkers book, disability discourses came out around 10 years ago, too early to deconstruct my not heckling the VC's opening speech.
