Feminist Abolition and Disability Justice
Offering a critical disability perspective on policing, criminalization, and incarceration, this conversation contributes to the call for racial justice that was renewed in 2020. ILiat Ben-Moshe, author of Decarcerating Disability, and Subini Annamma, author of The Pedagogy of Pathologization, will examine why abolitionists need critical disability frameworks, and why disability scholars need abolition. Megan Welsh (SDSU Criminal Justice and Public Administration) will moderate. How can we bring disabled people of color, disabled queer and trans people, and disabled working-class and rural people into our analysis of criminalization, policing, and incarceration? Ben-Moshe’s and Annamma’s research has highlighted how disabled people past and present have resisted criminalization, and organized to end their confinements. The discussion will also explore how we can apply abolitionist and critical disability perspectives to push for equity in public policy.

This event is part of the Feminist Disability Justice speaker series through the Bread and Roses Feminist Research Colloquium of Women’s Studies Department at San Diego State University.
