"Interpersonal and Institutional Discrimination among U.S. Adults with Disability"
More than one in four U.S. adults reports at least some difficulty with vision, cognition, mobility, self-care, or independent living. Rates of impairment among working-age adults have increased in recent years, raising concerns about the short- and long-term consequences for their social integration, psychological well-being, and economic security. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enacted 30 years ago, has been instrumental in expanding opportunities for and fighting institutional discrimination against persons with impairment. However, less is known about the more subtle yet pernicious forms of stigmatization and microaggressions experienced by persons with impairment. Using data from the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS), a national sample of U.S. adults, I examine whether persons with impairment are at a heightened risk of multiple forms of interpersonal and institutional discrimination, and the extent to which these experiences are a mechanism linking disability status with mental health symptoms. Drawing on stigma, life course, and double jeopardy perspectives, I also show how the psychosocial consequences associated with disability status differ on the basis of age/life course stage, gender, and occupational status. The results demonstrate that impairment does not operate as a “master status” and its interpersonal consequences vary by one’s social location. I discuss the implications for theory, research, and practice.

This talk will introduce the Food Activities, Socioeconomics, Time-use, and Transportation (FASTT) Study, a project which integrates concepts of time geography with theories from food and health geographies. In March 2019, time-use diaries, GPS trajectory data, and dietary questionnaires were collected from partnered-parents in households from two Toronto neighborhoods - one urban and one suburban. These data are used to explore questions about time pressure and dietary behavior, the division of food labor, and the role of the built environment in food shopping. Findings from two papers currently underway - one on coupled exposure to food retail and the other on how food-related time use patterns link to differing geographies - will be presented, and implications for future work discussed.
Dr. Michael Widener is an Associate Professor and Canada Research Chair in Transportation and Health in the Department of Geography & Planning and incoming Director of Health Studies at the University of Toronto, Canada. He received his Ph.D. in Geography at SUNY - Buffalo. He is primarily interested in topics related to health, transportation, and urban geography and planning. His current research projects explore the impact of the built environment on food access and dietary behaviors, how older adults’ mental health and well-being is affected by their mobility options, and the links between time use and health outcomes.
