Master Planning Eugenics: Mapping, Navigating and Negotiating the Intersections and Overlays of Race, Class, Disability, and Queerness
Visioning, constructing, and maintaining structural oppressions necessitates a collaborative master planning approach that is comprehensive, nimble, and timeless. Settler-colonial states’ economic, political, legal, medical, and social anatomies. States intentionally exposing certain communities to precarity, violence, and deprivation and/or construct categories that invite subjugation, criminalization, pathologization, and commodification of society’s “undesirables” to endlessly reoccur. Learn how race, class, disability, queerness, and other identities have been carefully constructed and exactingly maintained through the application of ideas of purported “delinquency, dependency, and defectiveness.” Presenter will reframe ableism as a form of oppression that is experienced by all marginalized peoples (as opposed to just being experienced by those who are disabled or labeled disabled); and offer context into the inextricably linked struggles of multiply-marginalized people. The audience will leave with a new appreciation of why disability justice is a requisite for all forms of social justice–especially racial justice.
