Assignment Description:

 

The purpose of this activity is to offer students an opportunity to reflect on access and interdependence as it relates to disability justice. This assignment is designed to help you examine interdependence and its role in how the disability community is perceived within society. This assignment helps us explore ideas of independence in contrast to access and interdependence, and the impact of these concepts in society. Think about it. Independence is a concept that is glorified by most of us from a young age.

 

Think about elementary school…your teacher praising you for completing a task “all by yourself.”

 

Think about college assignments…mostly individual assignments and assessments rather than collaborative group work.

 

Think about housing communities…there are neighborhoods where neighbors rarely interact, even to say hello.

 

Think about government agencies…many agencies work independently of each other in compartmentalized silos, resulting in inefficiency and waste of resources.

 

Societally, interdependence is not a commonly reinforced or endorsed concept. Many assert that disability justice cannot be realized unless society makes a concentrated effort to honor interdependence.

 

This assignment will ask you to reflect on, analyze, and dive deeper into what interdependence means and how it relates to access and disability justice.

 

Required Assignment Activity & Prompts:

 

Answer: How do you value independence? Where did this valuing of independence originate in your own life?

 

Read the following: https://rootedinrights.org/the-imperative-of-effic…. by Eleni Stephanides, and answer: Identify areas where interdependence plays a role in your life. Consider your family, school, work, sports, culture, community, etc., in your answer. (FOR THIS PART YOU CAN JUST SAY GENERALIZED THINGS LIKE I ENJOY WATCHING SPORTS AND HOW FAMILY IS IMPORTANT TO ME, NO NEED TO GO INTO ANY SPECIFICS)

 

Read the following blog post: https://leavingevidence.wordpress.com/2017/04/12/a… by Mia Mingus. Review: https://www.sinsinvalid.org/blog/10-principles-of-… and answer the following:

 

Why might independence be viewed as an ableist myth from a Disability Justice perspective?

 

Compare and contrast “access intimacy” as distinct from simply creating logistically or legally accessible spaces? This comparison/contrast should include your own examples of access intimacy versus access.

 

Reflect on the information from the two articles and the disability experiences we’ve shared in the course. Consider these aspects of your own life (family, culture, career choice, media interests, etc.) and answer these questions:

 

How can you practice parts of disability justice?

 

How can you help grow access intimacy?
