What are the unspoken norms that frame what constitutes competency or achievement? How do conceptual, social, and material spaces value some kinds of body-minds and not others? And now can both non-disabled people and academic institutions begin to take responsibility for their own unnoticed ableist attitudes and problematic teaching and learning practices?
In this panel discussion, we explore how we can critique the existing shape of higher education through the richness of our neuro and biodiversity and differences, rather than ‘adding’ disabled people or merely including them into existing normative higher education practices.
