Title:  Beginning Without a Mind: How the Concept of Intellectual Disability Undermines Epistemic Inclusion

Description: This talk explores a significant barrier to cultivating epistemic inclusion within contexts regulated by able-minded normalcy. In particular, I argue that the concept of intellectual disability has always been bound up with negative epistemic meanings and consequences; that is, it is a concept that implies deficiency in one's ability to contribute to knowledge. I call this conceptual formation "disabled-mindedness," and argue that it constitutes a form of epistemic violence rather than being, as is widely assumed, a necessary consequence of the impairment that the concept of intellectual disability supposedly tracks.
