Disability History Group
2010 conference
 
Dates: Friday 25th and Saturday 26th June, 2010 
Venue: University of Central Lancashire, Preston (UCLan)
www.uclan.ac.uk 
Title: Disability History: looking forward to a better past?
Theme: Reviewing the present and future state of disability history:
where we are, how we got here and where we are going
 
Plenary Speakers: 
Professor Catherine J Kudlick, University of California, Davis
Professor Eva Simonsen, Oslo University
 
Disability history has emerged in recent years as an increasingly
popular sub-discipline of historical research, covering social,
cultural, medical, practical, gendered, technological and linguistic
aspects of the lives of those seen by society as having ‘disabled’
bodies and minds. The Disability History Group are pleased to announce
their latest conference.‘Disability History: looking forward to a better
past?’ which promotes the DHG’s goal to advance research into the
history of disability. It is hoped the conference will broaden the scope
of disability history and deliver fresh and dynamic perspectives on the
way disability has been used to legitimate and understand norms, social
relations, inequality, and oppression. This includes historical research
into individuals, groups and institutions, as well as
representations/constructions and perspectives on disability.
 
The overarching theme of this conference is ‘Where are we, how did we
get here and where are we going next?’. To this end, the conference is
dedicated to an evaluation of all aspects of disability history at
regional, national and international levels. In ‘looking forward to a
better past’, the DHG hopes to encourage lively and informed debate on
the current state of disability history; how the discipline has emerged
and arrived at this point; and where scholars working in the discipline
will go in the future. However, paper topics are not prescriptive – we
invite potential speakers to consider the ways that their current
research has emerged and its context within the sub-discipline of
disability history.
