I teach French language and modern French literature and culture at the University of Minnesota, Morris, a public liberal arts college. I work in continental French disability studies. I have a long history of professional service to Disability Studies and first served the MLA Committee on Disability Issues 1997-2000. I care about diversity of people, perspectives, and theoretical approaches in understanding disability and disabled students; listening, equity, and affording space and opportunities to others; the language(s) we use to think about disability; the interdependence of theory and activism. What can disability studies do next to make more space(s) in higher ed for people with disabilities and their smarts and experiences?
