Call for Student Posters: Multiple Perspectives on Access Inclusion and Disability

Posted on 2/22/2010 3:18:35 PM

Student posters are needed for the tenth annual Multiple Perspectives on Access, Inclusion, and Disability: Future History.

The conference takes place April 27 and 28, 2010, at the Ohio State University, Columbus Campus. The student poster session will be Tuesday, April 27, 2010.

This year, the Multiple Perspectives Conference is celebrating its tenth anniversary and looking forward to this summer’s twentieth anniversary of the ADA refreshed by recent amendments. This is an opportunity to consider where we are, how we got here, and where we are going. One of our annual traditions has been a poster reception following the Ken Campbell Memorial Lecture. We are seeking poster presentations from graduate and undergraduate students that represent the broad interdisciplinary approaches to disability. Submissions may be based on the following:

  • Class projects and papers
  • Independent and supervised student research
  • Community service and applied problem solving from service learning classes or student organizations
  • Art and performance

Posters can take a variety of forms, including print material mounted on posterboard or display panels or arranged on a table, or PowerPoint presentation, webpages, or video presentations from laptop (ten minute maximum length).

Presentation materials must fit on a 3' × 6' table or along six feet or less of wall space. Presenters must provide their own equipment.
