The late author and activist Marta Russell wrote a number of groundbreaking and insightful essays on the nature of disability and oppression under capitalism. From exploring the material basis of disability as being rooted in the very operation of the capitalist mode of production, to advancing a revolutionary critique of the liberal "rights-based" model of disability activism, this talk will elaborate the profound contributions made by Russell to a comprehensive Marxist understanding of modern disablement.
