using a wheelchair in montreal:
marginalization in the city

Student Experience

2:00 - 3:00


Modéré par Stéphanie Chipeur et Anne-Sophie Berg, cet atelier explore des questions de marginalisation à Montréal sous l'angle du "disability". Stephanie est devenue utilisatrice d'un fauteuil roulant pendant ses études supérieures à la Faculté de droit de McGill. Nous discuterons de l'intersectionalité, le rôle des allié.es et l'approche critique en études de "disability".

Facilitated by Stephanie Chipeur and Anne-Sophie Berg, this workshop will explore questions of marginalization in Montréal through the lens of disability. Stephanie became a wheelchair user during her graduate studies at McGill’s Faculty of Law. We will discuss intersectionality, allyship and critical disability studies.

The workshop will be in English (but participation is welcome in English or French).
