We are very pleased to invite you to attend the next seminar in our on-going series on global disability research, jointly organised by the Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre and the Centre for International Health and Development, and funded by UCL Futures.
Digging deeper into 'inclusive development': insights from a discursive analysis of the construction and problematisation of disability in international development policy
Speaker: Nina Marshall
Nina Marshall's research investigates the intersection between policy articulations and discourses of disability, development and equality.
In this fascinating seminar, she will present these intersections through a case study analysis of the World Bank's disability website over a ten-year period.
Nina Marshall is a PhD candidate at the School of Sociology, Politics and International Studies at the University of Bristol.
The seminar will take place on the 22nd March 2012 from 5pm-7pm and will be followed by a drinks reception.
