Autonomy, Community, Destiny: Re-Imagining Disability

Wednesday, October 25, 2017 -
1:00pm to 2:00pm
Radcliffe Humanities, Woodstock Road, OX2 6GG
Seminar Room

The second seminar in the Disability and Curriculum Diversity series at TORCH with Elizabeth Frood (Associate Professor of Egyptology, Oxford), Dom Hyams (Producer and Editor-in-Chief, Power100) and Marie Tidball (Research Associate in Law, Oxford) .

Professor Elizabeth Frood, will speak on the way her own acquired disability has had an impact on re-framing how she does fieldwork and how this has led her to adapt the methodologies she uses as an Egyptologist. Entrepreneur, Television Presenter and Editor of Power 100, Dom Hyams will speak on the potential role of the AssistMi app and other assistive technology you work with, could have on revolutionising research, which not only makes fieldwork more accessible for disabled people but enables them as researchers to access important data which benefits academia more generally.

This event will be chaired by Dr Marie Tidball. 

Lunch will be provided from 12.30-1pm. Discussion at 1-2pm.

Booking is essential. Please register here
