It is with great excitement and pride that I share the list of scheduled ableism events.
As part of my work for Social Research & Practice and Education Ltd., I offer workshops, consultations, training sessions and presentations relating to research practices and pedagogies, specifically working with physical and material representations, metaphors and creative methods. To celebrate the publication of my two edited books, I am speaking about Ableism in Academia at a range of events. Each event focuses on a specific aspect of the books’ contents. I am privileged to be discussing experiences, practices, policies with esteemed colleagues and experts in their fields.
Lived Experiences of Ableism in Academia: Strategies for Inclusion in Higher Education is available for purchase from Policy Press.
