Bethany Steven’s fascinating interview on Telling Our Disability Stories

Don’t miss Bethany Steven’s fascinating interview on Telling Our
Disability Stories.

In the podcast available on iTunes she talks with the host, Anthony
Tusler, about her latest research in trainability. It is the
phenomenon of able-bodied people passing as disabled. We have a wide
ranging conversation touching on disability identity, sexuality,
politics, and her recent marriage.

Bethany Stevens is a professor and researcher in disability leadership
and sexuality. In 2011 she was awarded the Irving K. Zola award for an
emerging scholar in Disability Studies by the Society for Disability
Studies. Her paper, “Interrogating Transability: A Catalyst to View
Disability as Body Art,” explores able-bodied people passing as
disabled.

To listen or download the podcast just search for “disability stories”
or “Tusler” on the iTunes store. Telling Our Disability Stories is a
monthly podcast sponsored by the Accessible Technology
Coalition.
