Disability Studies Catalog and Collection

Jeff Edelstein

MA ’19

While initiatives like the University of Michigan Initiative for Disability Studies (UMInDS) have started to build academic programming with respect to disability studies, the infrastructure for the implementation of disability studies into general diverse and inclusive research, teaching, and scholarship is still relatively limited. I plan to fill in gaps in UM resources and provide physical artifacts for a collection of selected resources to be maintained by UMInDS. By establishing a thorough catalog of written and audiovisual content (e.g. books, articles, and documentaries), I hope to benefit faculty and students throughout UM who wish to integrate disability perspectives into their instruction and studies.
