Professor Kudlick: The Price of 'Disability Denial'
THE NEW YORK TIMES -- Catherine Kudlick is a professor of History and the director of the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University. She wrote this essay for The New York Times’ Disability series:

“I always knew my day at the podium would come. In fact, on one of our walks I’d asked Bill for advice about teaching larger classes. I told him about the details of my lifelong vision impairment and of my terror of public speaking, and asked about how I’d deal with calling on students when I couldn’t see them. In smaller classes, I learned quickly where people sat, and the give-and-take of conversation told me who was engaged. But applying this to more than 30 people seemed overwhelming.

“I have nystagmus, a condition in which involuntary, jumpy movement of my eye muscles makes it difficult to focus, a chore that constantly challenges my brain as it frantically tries to keep up. As a child, my thick bifocal glasses and lack of confidence made me the brunt of cruel names and pranks, like being surrounded by kids who threw things on the ground and forced me to look for them. Later there were awkward, sometimes hostile encounters with potential landlords, dates and employers who I tried to brush off as a few gross kids who never grew up. ...

“Though I am not fully blind, my vision impairment, and the challenges it presents, has made me particularly attuned to how others perceive blind people. Our words equate blindness with being out of control and clueless — phrases like ‘love is blind,’ ‘blind rage,’ ‘blind to the possibilities,’ to ‘blindly carry on.’ Such ideas slip quietly into our souls. They find their way onto playgrounds and into news stories, and before long they’re floating inside and outside of doctor’s offices, in sports competitions, film studios, policy debates. And in job interviews.”

Alum Richard Oakes Featured on Google Doodle
HEAVY.COM/COED.COM -- Native American activist Richard Oakes is the subject of today’s Google Doodle. May 22, 2017, would be his 75th birthday. Oakes is best known for creating one of the first Native American studies departments in the nation, and leading an occupation of Alcatraz Island in the late 1960s.

While in attendance at SFSU, however, Oakes grew discontent with the courses that were being offered, and joined forces with an Anthropology professor to expand the curriculum to include Native American studies.

He developed the outline for what would go on to become one of the first Native American studies programs in the nation, which encouraged other American Indians to enroll in San Francisco State University, according to the Richard Oakes Multicultural Center. This increasing awareness among the community, coupled with Oakes’ increasing interest in activism and equality, eventually led to the famed Alcatraz protest in 1969.

Professor Stein Recounts 1967 Supreme Court Decision Upholding Deportation of 'Homosexuals' as 'Psychopaths'
HISTORY NEWS NETWORK -- Marc Stein is the Jamie and Phyllis Pasker Professor of History at San Francisco State University and the author of several books, including “Sexual Injustice: Supreme Court Decisions from Griswold to Roe” (University of North Carolina Press, 2010). For the fiftieth anniversary of Boutilier v. INS, he is launching an online exhibit on and moderating a roundtable on Notches.

“As we remember Boutilier v. the INS on its 50th anniversary, there are good reasons to be angry and upset about the historical mistreatment of ‘homosexuals’ and other gender and sexual ‘deviates’ in the U.S. immigration system,” Stein writes. ”In this context, we have options about how we choose to remember. We can disavow the historical connections between homosexuality and disability, insisting that the primary injustice in Boutilier lies in the mischaracterization of ‘homosexuals’ as psychopaths. We also can consider what it might mean to recognize and explore these connections, which might be a better starting place for thinking about our ongoing struggles against immigration restriction.”

Student Sabina Khan-Ibarrais Analyzes 'Master of None'
PATHEOS -- Sabina Khan-Ibarrais a freelance writer and editor. She has written for Huffington Post, The Tempest, Love Inshallah, Altmuslim, Patheos Muslim and other sites. She is an Master of Fine Arts creative nonfiction candidate at San Francisco State University. In an opinion piece, Khan-Ibarrais analyzes a recent episode of Aziz Ansari’s sitcom, “Master of None”:

“These liberals love the progressive movement when it means erasing religion from identity, instead of accepting it as a part of those Muslims who identify as liberals. It’s because trying to understand something complex is difficult for some. They’d rather keep their little boxes and labels and have us work around it instead of making the boxes less rigid.

“I truly appreciated that this was Ansari’s story and I find it refreshing how the episode deals with the complexities of parent and adult children relationships. However, we don’t want to be left with two extremes of the Muslim spectrum that is shown on television — either a terrorist/cab drivers or nonreligious (non-threatening) Muslims.”
