Mumbai to host international conference on "Dis/Ability Communication: Perspectives and Challenges"
Three-day international conference on "Dis/Ability Communication: Perspectives and Challenges" in the 21st Century is going held on 9-11 January, 2017, at Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini in Mumbai.

The conference is being organized by the Department of Communication and Journalism (DCJ), University of Mumbai, in collaboration with AYJNIHH, Bandra, Mumbai, India and the Communication, Culture & Diversity (CCD) research at Jonkoping University, Sweden.

According to the event organizers, 'Dis-Ability Communication' focuses a continuum of abilities and constitutes a continuous process that involves people's participation across different settings and stages of communication. 

However, the participation processes are embedded in a matrix of ideological hegemony, including practices in society that thwart the cultural identity of persons with disabilities, hence we need to provide participation and accessibility to cultural life, recreation, leisure and sports.

The topics of interest during the conference include, but are not limited to: Dis/Ability Communication; Dis/Ability Rights; Dis/Ability Narratives and Culture' Accessible Technology; Exploring Diversity and Dis/Ability, etc.

According to Australian Disability Services commission, through positive and appropriate interactions with people with disability, we can help break down the barriers that they face in the community and in the physical environment. It is important to recognise people with disability for what they can do, rather than focusing on their limitations.
