The Transforming Knowledge, Research and Activism (TDKRA) invites you to join us for our Film Screening event, entitled “Our Journey: An Interdisciplinary Conversation with Women and Girls with Disabilities across Borders”. Our Journey is a documentary film figuring the collective voice of girls and women with disabilities in Vietnam, who have engaged in the TDKRA project from 2017-2019. We tell stories drawn on our past and present experiences with disability, our journey against institutional racism, ableism, gender inequality, and our desire and actions to foster positive social change in the global South.

The screening will be followed by an interdisciplinary conversation about the film with Deborah Stienstra, Claudia Mitchell, Thuy Linh Dang, Landon Pearson, and Xuan Thuy Nguyen. Deborah Stienstra is Professor in Disability Studies at the Department of Political Science and Director of the Live Work Well Centre at the University of Guelph. Claudia Mitchell is Distinguished James McGill Professor and Director of the Institute of Human Development and Well-being at McGill University. Landon Pearson, Chair, Landon Pearson Centre for the Study of Childhood and Children’s Rights, Carleton University. Linh Dang is a young woman with disabilities studying at the Hanoi Law School, and a Research Assistant of the TDKRA project. Xuan Thuy Nguyen is Assistant Professor in the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies, the Pauline Jewett Institute of Women’s and Gender Studies at Carleton University, and the TDKRA project’s Principal Investigator.
