D&A Disability History Month

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


In this session, we will explore disabled people’s history in the UK, with a particular focus on the evolution of theory, language, and the relationship with healthcare.

By understanding the historical experiences of disabled people, we can reconsider the models of disability, their uses, and ways to develop a stronger and more progressive understanding of disability.

In addition, we will explore where the UK’s language of disability has come from, and why the disabled community use the language they do today.

We use automatic live captioning for our webinars through Zoom
