The Voice of Disability Seminar Series, CCDS, Liverpool Hope University

The Centre for Culture and Disability Studies, Liverpool Hope University, presents ‘The Voice of Disability’ seminar series:

The last 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.
