Traveling the Path Forward
Thursday, Oct. 18, 12:30-1:30 p.m.
The Department of Gender Studies Speakers’ Series invites you to a presentation by Jen d’Eon, Master of Gender Studies candidate, titled “Traveling the Path Forward.” In this presentation I will be discussing an internship project completed at the Glenn Roy Blundon Centre with a focus on assistive technologies. The goal of the internship was to create an accessibility guide which can be used by students with disabilities on campus. This research will help the Blundon Centre transition from an accommodations centre to an accessibility centre. I will discuss personal experience, findings, and recommendations for future progress in this field. Thorough the lens of intersectional feminism, I consider the various aspects of student identity including, but not limited to, dis/ability. While dis/ability may be what leads a student to the Blundon Centre and/or assistive technology, it is not the only factor that contributes to that student’s experience.
