Description:

David M. Perry is an associate professor of history at Dominican University. He writes essays on disability, parenting, history, and gender for publications such as: CNN, The Atlantic, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and The Nation. David will talk about keeping the big picture in perspective while focusing his attention on doing what’s next. He’s learned to be open with his university and his family about his needs, while also recognizing the privileged position from which he operates. His strategies, despite some stumbles along the way, have helped him get tenure and become a public advocate for causes that he values, all while serving as the primary caregiver for his children and keeping his marriage healthy. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion with Northwestern faculty and staff members sharing their perspectives on these issues.

Evanston: Tuesday October 29th, Noon-1:30 p.m., Norris, Lake Room
Chicago: Wednesday October 30th, Noon-1:30 p.m., Lurie Center, Gray Room
