Core Lab Meetings

Biweekly meetings that cement the core of the CGDS community: join us to catch up and have a coffee, discuss an article, or share work in progress. New folks welcome – please email cgds.utsc@utoront.ca so that we can help to welcome you to your first core lab meeting. Core Lab meetings are held during the UofT fall and winter term season. Core Lab meetings always have AI captioning; other access elements will be arranged upon request.

Critical Conversations

Our flagship event series brings together scholars, activists, and researchers to discuss timely issues that impact global disability justice. These are public-facing events, and registration information will be posted as the event approaches.
