Disability History Month - Cripping Academia: Towards an Access-Centred Education

When: Fri 06 Dec 2019 - Sat 07 Dec 2019
Where: B103 (Brunei Gallery Building)


For Disability History Month 2019, the SOAS SU and the Disabled and Carers' Students Officer have put together this panel discussion on how to make a crip out of the academy and move towards an access-centred education.

Our panellists and audience will explore ideas about accessibility, how to re-think and study disabilities, what representation looks like, what gets media attention, non-westernised approached to disability as well as the intersections between disability justice and other liberation movements. The panel will include:

- Julie Jaye Charles - Head of the Equalities National Council
- Katouche Goll - artist and part of Imminent
- Lena Obermaier - Critical Disability Studies academic
- Danni Watts - Chief Editor of TABOU, Oxford student-led magazine on disability
- Carol John - Disability and Neurodiversity Advisor at SOAS
