The last Centre for Culture & Disability Studies (CCDS) seminar series ran at Liverpool Hope University over a number of years and culminated in Changing Social Attitudes Toward Disability: Perspectives from Historical, Cultural, and Educational Studies, an edited book that we are now completing for Routledge.
Building on this success, we are hosting a new series entitled The Voice of Disability and can now confirm a number of guest speakers:
18th Dec – Cleavings: Critical Losses and Deaf Gain. Prof Michael Davidson (University of California, San Diego)
15th Jan – Creative/Critical Research: The Poem sequence ‘Phantom/Sex Ontology’. Dr Cath Nichols (University of Leeds)
12th Feb – Oneself as Another: The Problem of ‘Voice’ in Alzheimer’s Life Writing. Dr Lucy Burke (Manchester Metropolitan University)
12th Mar – Narrating Disability Inside and Outside the Clinic: Or, Beyond Empathy. Prof Tom Couser (Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York)
21st May – The Reality and Rhetoric of Pupil Voice: Exploring the Educational Journeys of Young People Labelled with Behavioural, Emotional, and Social Difficulties. Dr Marie Caslin (Liverpool Hope University)
