The Tango: What Deaf Studies and Disability Studies Do Mar 11, 2010, 7:00pm TBA at NTID/RIT Dr. Brueggemann's 2009-2010 lecture was on a theoretical and practical framework for outlining the similar and different work that Disability Studies and Deaf Studies do. She focused on three areas of their doing: the "locations"(disciplinary alliances) of their "study"; the "focus points" of their (current) study/ies; and the "key constructs" that comprise each area of study. Although she suggested that Disability Studies and Deaf Studies remain different bodies, she also indicated how, especially in the last decade, they have often been dancing together in exciting, provocative, colorful steps.
