The Hastings Center presents the virtual discussion “Navigating: On Disability, Technology, and Experiencing the World,” Tuesday, September 29, at 3 pm EST on Zoom.

The Zoom meeting is the second in a series of events developed by The Hastings Center and supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities to explore how people with disabilities are using—or choosing not to use—technologies to promote their own flourishing.

Which technologies, and under what circumstances, truly enhance a person’s ability to live the most meaningful life? This topic and more will be discussed.

The event will feature a panel discussion with Yomi S. Wrong, a health care professional, freelance journalist, and disability justice advocate; Rod Michalko, a sociologist who is blind; and Kim Q. Hall, a professor of philosophy who also teachers gender, women’s and sexual studies at Appalachian State University. 

The series is organized by Erik Parens, a senior research scholar at The Hastings Center; Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, a professor at Emory University, senior advisor at The Hastings Center, and co-editor of About Us: Essays from the Disabilities Series of the New York Times; and Joel Michael Reynolds, an assistant professor in bioethics and disability studies at Georgetown University.

The event will take place on Zoom at 3 pm Eastern time on Tuesday, September 29. It will have an ASL interpreter and will be closed captioned.
