Interdisciplinarity is pivotal in the development of the academy for many reasons, some of which form the conceptual framework of the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies. Although far from straightforward in practice, the thinking is that interdisciplinarity leads to curricular reform that itself leads to changes in social attitudes or more specifically, that appreciation of disability studies within the various academic disciplines ultimately contributes to the erosion of ableism and disablism in culture and society.

The organisers of the 4thbiennial CCDS conference welcome proposals from professors, lecturers, students, and other interested parties for papers that explore the benefits of interdisciplinarity between Disability Studies and subjects such as Aesthetics, Art, Business Studies, Creative Writing, Cultural Studies, Education Studies, Film Studies, History, Holocaust Studies, International Studies, Literary Studies, Literacy Studies, Management Studies, Media Studies, Medical Humanities, Museum Studies, Philosophy, Professional Studies, Special Educational Needs, Technology, and Womens Studies. This list is meant to be suggestive rather than exhaustive.

Paper proposals of 150-200 words should be sent to disciplines@hope.ac.uk on or before 1 February, 2017.

Paper presentations are allocated 20 minute slots and poster presentations, as well as themed panels of 3 papers are also encouraged.

Refreshments will be provided throughout the conference.

Additional accommodation can be added further along the booking process.

Please note the Early Bird Rate is only available until 1st April 2017.
