This workshop on Disability Issues will provide an interdisciplinary forum within which to share individual work and to begin wider conversations that explore and seek to understand this emerging field from diverse perspectives. The selection of invited presenters take up disability issues from perspectives of cultural representation, medical and psychological models of disability, social construction of disability as well as from theoretical approaches and critical perspectives that challenge deficit models of disability.
