Ableism in Academia
Trinity College Dublin (TCD) Forum for Disabled Staff and Postgraduate Students are delighted to host Ableism in Academia.
Date & Time
Tuesday, 17th August 2021
12:00 – 14:00 Irish Standard Time
Academia in Ireland purports to be diverse and inclusive but is it really? This seminar will explore Ableism in Academia in Ireland.
Although there have been greater numbers of disabled students progressing to higher education in recent years (7.1%), there have been far lower transition rates into postgraduate studies (2.4%) and then on to academia. Disabled people in academia report facing a range of barriers to a successful transition and ableism in academia is endemic. Resulting in fears of disclosure of a disability or seeking reasonable accommodations due to ableist attitudes and outdated perceptions. Little is known about the wider experiences of disabled people in academia in Ireland. This seminar will aim to explore ableism in academia in Ireland, provide a platform to share experiences of disabled, chronically ill and neurodivergent staff.
This will be an interactive session on Zoom.
This event is focused on all of the members of the disabled community working in the academic environment in higher education including academic, administrative, and casual, postgrads, postdocs etc.
