2nd Annual Yale Disability & Accessibility Symposium

The first week of April marks the anniversary of the April 5, 1977 historic Section 504 sit-in and protest in San Francisco, CA. Last year, students, faculty, and staff at Yale organized a day-long series of discussions and panels to mark the 45th anniversary of this critically important action. This year, we’ve expanded the event to offer an entire week of panel discussions, research presentations, exhibitions, and more on the subject of disability activism, inclusion, equity, and liberation.
Please note that events are a mix of virtual and in-person.

Towards a New Genealogy of Eugenics: Slavery and the Study of Race Crossing

Rana Hogarth, Associate Professor of History at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, will discuss how scientific endeavors to study mixed race people with Black and white ancestry in the early twentieth century did not emerge in a vacuum, nor did ideas about race that would later undergird eugenic race crossing studies on that very group of people. Slavery gave rise to myths and taxonomies that would come to dominate lay and scientific perceptions of mixed-race people’s bodies for years to come.
