Marion Quirici, PhD
Marion Quirici, PhD, is a scholar of disability studies who co-directs the Health Humanities Lab and teaches for the Thompson Writing Program at Duke University. Her courses train students to critique and revise cultural assumptions about disability by analyzing language, the media, popular representations, the law, institutional spaces and practices, and the built environment.
Dr. Quirici is also the director of a cross-disciplinary faculty working group in disability studies, and faculty advisor of Duke Disability Alliance. With these groups, and in her role at ADA, she strives to build stronger relationships between the university and the disability community.
