For all of you coming along and participating in this conference, please find attached a Draft Programme of the day.
If you haven’t yet signed up, we have 3 places left (a specific number, rather than the vague marketing guff offered to entice people at the ‘last minute’)…so please, get in contact with Kirsty or Simon via our email address to reserve your place.
We are very excited about being able to bring together such a wealth of ‘new’ talent to share their work and to discuss its implications…for the future of critical disability studies.
