The Emory DSI programs a number of events each year, including a speaker's series, film series, reading group, and a bi-annual scholar's showcase.
The DSI Speakers' Series brings eminent scholars from multiple fields to Emory University in order to highlight research that is on or related to disability. The series focuses primarily on public lectures, but we also program roundtables and seminars when possible.
Disability <IN FOCUS> is a film series hosted each year by the Emory's Disability Studies Initiative, often in collaboration with the Center for Ethics and the Center for the Study of Human Health Three to four films are chosen by a graduate student committee to be screened each semester. During the screening, panelists from around Emory's campus and the Atlanta area will bring their expertise to the film's subjects.
The DSI Scholar Showcase is a unique opportunity to connect with scholars from diverse disciplines and learn about the wealth of disability-related work being done in our community.
The DSI Works in Progress is a bi-annual event that hightlights the work of Emory scholars. This is a unique opportunity to see unfinished work and to participate in a conversation about disability studies and the production of scholarship.
The DSI Reading Group is a reading group facilitated each year by the Emory's Disability Studies Initiative for anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of disability studies (including undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and administrators).
Along with an exciting team of DSI members, Sam Vanhorn leads the uDSI in discussions and projects around campus related to disability.
