Adaptive Sports and Empowerment as Effective Public Health

SPM 300/DSP 300-M002/M001

Professor Bill Peace

Tues./Thurs. 2:00–3:30pm

306 Bowne Hall

Sports has always been an important part of American culture. Sports is of particular importance for People with Disabilities (PWDs) because participation in adaptive sports has often broken stereotypical barriers, led to greater opportunities in education, and advanced disability rights. 

As the number of PWDs participating in sports has increased, sports activity has resulted in better health and greater social integration.  Sports offer PWDs a way to demonstrate their capabilities and strengths.  While a few well-known athletes with disabilities have enjoyed success in professional sports (Casey Martin, Jim Abbott, Tom Dempsey, etc.), this course will focus on the burgeoning of adaptive sports.  Involvement in adaptive sports at any level demonstrates what PWDs can do and as a result represents a revolutionary way to advance civil rights and increase access to health care.

Advanced Gender Communication

CRS/WGS/QSX 400

Dr. Erin J. Rand

Tuesday & Thursday from 12:30–1:50pm

It seems like everyone is talking about issues of gender and sexuality today. But what does it all mean? Marriage equality is the law of the land and Fun Home won the Tony for Best Musical. Caitlyn Jenner has her own show. Debates rage over funding for Planned Parenthood, equal pay for women, and dress codes for girls. Trans women of color are routinely murdered, and black boys and girls are targeted by police. How can we make sense of these issues from a critical feminist and queer perspective?

This course examines the multiple, often contradictory ways that feminism, queerness, and gender and sexual difference manifest in popular discourses in the US. We will consider a variety of contemporary texts, ranging from scholarly essays to popular fiction and nonfiction, memoirs, graphic novels, and films. These texts will encourage a richly intersectional approach, emphasizing discourses of race and class and addressing themes of consent, reproduction, geography, privilege, embodiment, identity, and more.

This is a seminar style course designed for advanced undergraduates who have already taken an introductory course in gender and/or sexuality studies. Instructor consent required. Please email ejrand@syr.edu for more information and permission to register.

FPP Topics in Higher Ed: Does Science Work? The 'Crisis' in Research Integrity, Transparency and Reproducibility

FPP Topics in Higher Ed …

Does Science Work? The ‘Crisis’ in Research Integrity, Transparency, and Reproducibility

Friday, November 13

9:15-10:30 am

Bird Library 114 (Peter Graham Scholarly Commons)

For years, concern has been simmering across scientific disciplines that academic research as currently conducted claims more in the way of objectivity and reliability than can hold up to rigorous attempts at verification. Now, a growing body of studies aimed at replicating previously published results is revealing the situation to be worse than feared, with appallingly low rates of reproducibility calling into question whether research findings as reported in the professional literature can plausibly be taken to constitute scientific “knowledge.” This roundtable discussion featuring faculty from regional research institutions will interrogate the nature, causes, and implications of what has been termed the “crisis” in research, examining such issues as bias in publication (the preference of journal editors and conference organizers for results deemed statistically significant), the resulting phenomenon of “P-hacking” or “P-mining” (the serial application of different statistical methods or sets of variables until the desired result is achieved), the growing temptation of fraud and falsification as the proliferation of publication venues and the sheer number of published studies reduces the risk of detection, and the possible consequences of mainstream media attention to the issue in terms of diminished public confidence in science, a weaker voice for science in shaping discourse on social issues and public policy, and the devaluation of scientific careers.

Moderator: Prof. Evelyn Brister (Philosophy), Rochester Institute of Technology

Discussants:

Prof. David Amberg (Biochemistry and Molecular Biology), Vice President for Research at SUNY Upstate Medical U.

Prof. Gregory Robinson (Political Science), Binghamton U., SUNY

Prof. Neil Ringler (Environmental and Forest Biology), Vice Provost for Research at SUNY ESF

Prof. Carl D’Angio (Pediatrics, Medical Humanities and Bioethics), Research Ethics curriculum co-director at the U. of Rochester Medical Center

Call for Proposals - Disability Studies topic area of Pacific Rim Conference

Disability Studies: Exploring the Margins from the Center and the Center from the Margins 

April 25-26, 2016

Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, HI 

http://www.pacrim.hawaii.edu/topics/foundation/disability-studies-exploring-margins-center-and-center-margins

Due Date: Dec. 17, 2015

Disability-related issues are becoming more and more mainstreamed. For instance, several universities are starting to offer Disability Studies as an undergraduate major option.  At the same time, people with various disabilities, ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender issues, for example, expressly discuss how they remain at the margins and may be even at the margins of the margins.

Where does Disability Studies fit in these discussions of multiple oppressions/identities and social inequalities, and what are scholars doing to advance theories and understandings of intersectionality? We are interested in presentations that will address less discussed areas of contemplation, critical reflection and analysis. See below for some questions to spur ideas:

Examples of potential proposals include:

·       Is there a role for disability, and other, studies in academic situations to promote justice and equality?

·       Does it make sense for Disability Studies to be in its own academic department? If not, where does it make sense for Disability Studies to be located?

·       Best practices for how Disability Studies can serve as a space to spawn and invigorate a new generation of critical thinkers?

·       What is to be learned from the current explosion of Disability Studies-related books?

·       What audiences are being reached with Disability Studies? In what ways are scholars and activists measuring the impact of Disability Studies? Do we need to look at Disability Studies in innovative ways to understand whether it is having a broader impact on society? If so, what are some examples of these new means of measurement?

·       What is “Ability Studies”* and how does it intersect with Disability Studies?

·       ”Ability Studies is an emerging field that investigates ability expectation (want stage) and ableism (need stage) hierarchies, preferences, and their impact on human-human, human-animal, and human-nature relationships.”( Gregor Wolbring).

·       How does Disability Studies address the prevalent isms: ableism, racism, ethnocentrism, sexism and classism, and what might be done to go beyond and ameliorate these isms?

·       Best practices, recent research, advocacy and training initiatives addressing intersectional systems and multiple systems of discrimination; 

·       In what ways might Disability Studies make a positive impact on human life and activities?

·       How might Disability Studies, developed largely in western countries, be relevant in other countries and cultures with different histories and cultures?  Examples of different models would be welcomed;

·       Does media, including social media, bring disability into the center or move it back to the margins? How might Disability Studies impact all media to improve policy and social change? How do we know if it’s working (i.e. how do we measure whether the media is being impacted)?

·       What is the intersection of disability, diversity, and ethics? Does Disability Studies play a role, or have a role to play, in ethics discussions, policy implementation, or other socio-cultural intersections?

We welcome proposals that discuss these issues and more. If you have a proposal that may not fit in to the above targets, we will welcome them as part of our discussion. We welcome proposals in any presentation format. We also welcome presentations in innovative formats including readings, performance art, graphics and roundtables.

Call for Papers: Social Justice in Times of Crisis and Hope: Young People, Well-being and the Politics of Education

 

RMIT University’s Centre For Education, Training and Work in the Asian Century and Lancaster University’s Centre for Social Justice and Wellbeing in Education are jointly hosting a conference: 

Social Justice in Times of Crisis and Hope: Young People, Well-being and the Politics of Education

Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th July 2016, Barcelona, Spain

The 21st Century has so far been characterised by conflict, displacement, growing economic insecurity and austerity. Increasing social polarisation has meant that contemporary societies are becoming more unequal with smaller segments of the population having access to the most wealth. Recent years have seen large numbers of young people involved in social movements aimed at creating socially just societies. The ongoing conflicts around the world and the recent refugee crisis in Europe has only intensified calls for justice, equity, compassion and understanding. We live in times of despair and conflict, but also times of hope and action.

This three-day conference (including a half-day networking event) asks delegates to explore the role of social justice in times of crisis and hope. We ask for papers that examine the role of young people in contemporary social movements, with the kinds of demands that are being made by the world’s young people, and with the spaces within which they are making such demands. In addition we encourage papers that engage with the notion of well-being, with what this means in the contemporary moment and for whom. Finally we wish to interrogate the politics of education, to think about the limits and possibilities, and the challenges and opportunities for social justice through education.

Conference themes:

What is social justice?

Social justice in the age of Digital Media

The roles of informal and formal education (early childhood, primary, secondary, higher), teacher education/identities

Global problems, global perspectives

Global Financial Crisis, sovereign debt, austerity

Conflict, war, terror

New and enduring forms of marginalisation, exclusion, disadvantage

Migrants, refugees, asylum seekers

Indigenous populations

Disabilities

Class, economies

Genders, sexualities

Geography and context

Recognising, working with/for/across difference(s)

Conference fee: £100

Abstracts must be received by Monday 4th January 2016.  For more information see: http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/social-justice-crisis-hope/

Syracuse University Login Study

Do you find computers and the Internet difficult to use because of your cognitive disability?

Our research aims to make computers and the Internet more accessible and easier to use for people like you. 

We are a group of researchers at Syracuse University and we are recruiting adults with cognitive disabilities, including those with developmental disabilities such as autism and specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia to better understand their difficulties in using current login systems. The researchers will visit their home or other environment (e.g., public library) where the participants regularly use computers and the Internet. 

The visit will take about 1 hour in which the researchers will observe how participants use computers and the Internet, and log into various services, attempting to uncover any difficulties that the participants experience. The researchers will also ask the participants to fill out two surveys and conduct an interview to better understand their needs. 

Participants who complete the study will receive up to $30. If you’re interested in participating in this study, please fill out our recruitment survey at http://goo.gl/1hWZkN.

If you are selected, you will be contacted via email with detailed information on the study. We look forward to hearing from you!

Contact Dr. Yang Wang for more information about the study at ywang@syr.edu or (315.443.3744).

International Day of Persons with Disabilities: December 3, 2015

 http://www.un.org/disabilities/default.asp?id=1637

Theme -  Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) has been commemorated since 1992 to promote awareness and mobilize support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities. 

Individuals, agencies, organizations, academic institutions and the businesses are encouraged to partner with organizations of persons with disabilities to arrange events and activities to commemorate the Day.

Theme for 2015:

Inclusion matters: access and empowerment for people of all abilities

Sub-themes

  • Making cities inclusive and accessible for all
  • Improving disability data and statistics
  • Including persons with invisible disabilities in society

The estimated one billion people living with disabilities worldwide face many barriers to inclusion in many key aspects of society including transportation, employment, education and political participation. Participating in public life is both a fundamental right and an essential to a just and stable government.

  

10-hour job opportunity for student with transportation

From: Dean Joanna O Masingila

Would you have any masters students who are looking for a 10-hour job for the rest of the school year (could even extend into June)? The job involves supporting Ahmeed Turner with Say Yes to Education scholarship opportunities. The student would need transportation to get to 1005 W. Fayette Street in the SCSD building there that houses professional development, etc. (http://www.sayyessyracuse.org/).   

The student would need comfort with web-related tasks like loading photos into Dropbox, and editing web content using Wordpress. Training will be provided so if the student is comfortable with technology, that is fine. 

Additionally, the student would assist in informing high school students in the Syracuse City School District about the scholarships. This would involve visiting high schools on certain days and informing students about the scholarships and having some college access discussions. Training will be provided about the scholarships and how they work, as well as the latest in college access. 

The student would need to have availability to work during school hours (10 hours per week). Please have interested students contact me at jomasing@syr.edu
