Valentin Haüy – Founder of the first school for blind people in 1784

 

It is no longer useful to distinguish people by the binary opposition able-bodied/disabled.

We now recognise people on a continuum of ability on which no-one is entirely able-bodied or entirely disabled.

But was it always true? And if it is true now, does this require that we reconsider the use of binary oppositions when understanding people and their capabilities?

VariAbilit(ies) is an interdisciplinary conference which will explore these questions.
