Lauren Obermark/ Interdependent Pedagogies: Rethinking Access and Disability in Graduate Education

Interdependent Pedagogies: Rethinking Access and Disability in Graduate Education

This talk draws from a small qualitative study of graduate students, exploring their experiences in coursework and how these experiences shape their teaching. Graduate students participating in the study grapple with ableist norms and offer insight into how disability studies as both content and approach influences their personal pedagogies.

Lauren Obermark is an assistant professor of English at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, where she teaches courses about rhetoric, writing, disability studies, and public memory to undergraduate and graduate students. At the heart of all her work is an ongoing investigation of how rhetoric informs 21st-century practices of civic engagement, social justice, and pedagogy. She has recently published articles on writing program administration, disability studies, and public rhetoric in/about Ferguson, Missouri.
