In today's show, I am joined by Dr. Xuan Thuy Nguyen, an Associate Professor at Carleton University at the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies & the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women's and Gender Studies and the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. We talk about decolonial disability studies, the work of doing research in global south countries, and the impact of southern theories on the meaning of disability. We also discuss how she thinks disability can save the world.
