We wanted pass along information about an upcoming GSA Connects 2023 topical session that may be of interest - please pass this information to others: T 69. Disabled and Neurodivergent Perception, Community, and Identity in Geoscience
Disabled and neurodivergent perspectives are inextricably linked to the work we do as scientists, and as human beings. As members of a set of marginalized and medicalized identities, we invite talks that highlight the importance of showcasing how disability and neurodivergence informs our research, our lived perspectives, and the place these perspectives deserve in our scientific communities.
Potential topics include disabled and neurodivergent perspective and ways of knowing in geosciences, storytelling in paleontology, and building the future of disabled and neurodiverse pedagogy and research in geoscience, among others. We welcome proposals from those who identify as disabled or neurodivergent, members of groups with intersectional and multiply-marginalized identities, and allies with a strong commitment to disabled and neurodivergent equity.
Sharing disabled and neurodiverse perspectives at GSA in a topical session will help to destigmatize and to further promote these perspectives as part of a diverse and equitable society.
