Professor Doron Dorfman Featured on The Disability Equity Podcast
In part one of the Johns Hopkins University-produced podcast, Professor Doron Dorfman shares his work examining how ideologies, stigma, and stereotypes of disability impact policies, and the high stakes implications during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dorfman shares examples of how disability advocacy has been critical in combating these biases and changing policy.
The second part covers Dorfman's body of empirical work on "the fear of the disability con." and the burden of proof for people with disabilities. He explains the importance of expanding understanding of disability law to combat these misperceptions and discusses how his work shows that disability equity must stem from the recognition that disability is contextual and fluid.
