Event description

Description

Disability is an inherently cross-disciplinary issue, which should be genuinely researched through a 360-degree viewpoint, embracing its social, political, clinical and psychological origins, as well as the technical-contextual sphere connected to disabled people’s everyday life experience.

The First UCL Interdisciplinary Conference on Disability aims to bring together the most cutting-edge research on disability across departments and research centres, framing its evolving nature within the present situation and supplying a wide spectrum of academic perspectives with the purpose of favouring the effective, just and equal participation of disabled people in society. For this reason, the Conference intends to overcome the approach to disability as a problem to be solved, but as a way of innovating and promoting change in society, benefiting the community of disability researchers, disabled and non-disabled people by developing a more all-encompassing approach aimed at investigating disability as a multi-faceted phenomenon.
