The Chicago Disability Studies Conference started a few years ago, as an informal conference to provide a practice space for students with disabilities to share their work. Since then the conference has only grown, but its heart remains the same: A student-run space to provide graduate students, undergraduate students, activists, and community members a safe, accessible, non-judgmental space for gaining experience in presenting their work.
