In order to mark the beginning of the national Disability History Month (22nd November -22nd December), the History Faculty will run a workshop to promote the study of Disability History in the university.
Four speakers will reflect on the important and diverse research already underway in the field within Oxford, and will consider the future of Disability History at all academic levels. Each session will provide plenty of opportunity for discussion, and we hope that the workshop will inspire further events in the field.

PROGRAMME INCLUDES
William Whyte (St. John’s): 'The Trouble with Words: Writing a History of Dyslexia'Sloan Mahone (History Faculty): 'Epilepsy in Africa: Combining History, Activism, and Health Provision'
