Centre for Culture & Disability Studies Seminar Series: The Voice of Disability (2013–2014 academic year, Liverpool)

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.
