Jois Stansfield, Professor of Speech Pathology at Manchester Metropolitan University
This presentation will describe a study to develop and accessible history of the speech and language therapy profession. Using a range of methods to access material back to the 1800s, Professor Stansfield will describe the processes of data access and selection, documentary analysis and the organisation of findings into a timeline with searchable links and annotated bibliography, to be hosted on the Royal Collage of Speech and Language Therapists’ web site.
She will also discuss how history is only ever an interpretation and thus subjective, sometimes inaccurate and definitely incomplete, depending on the interests of the people doing the work.
