The “Ableism in Academia” event is taking place tomorrow, 23rd March 2018 at UCL Institute of Education.
This interactive symposium provides a forum to discuss the pressures and challenges faced by disabled, chronically ill, and neurodiverse staff in HE and FE.
We aim to create a policy-facing manifesto that will challenge academia’s existing notions of able-bodied perfection and provide impetus for change.
We look forward to welcoming colleagues from institutions up and down the country and across The Channel. But for those who did not get a ticket, please, note that there are three break-out events at Birkbeck, University of London for the Bloomsbury Learning Environment, at University of Kent and at University of Manchester.
Or you can follow the debate via our livestream: http://www.ucl.ac.uk/live/ableism-in-academia-2018 and join the debate via twitter @AcademicAbleism #AIA2018 and our dedicated moodle space, for which the joining instructions are here: http://www.nicole-brown.co.uk/joining-ableism-in-academia/
With kind regards
Please, note that I am working part-time and my working days are Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
