Disability Studies MA
Programme Leader, Dr David Bolt.
This programme is aligned with the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies and taught by tutors in the Department of Disability and Education, Liverpool Hope University.
Disability Studies is a relatively new but rapidly growing academic discipline, as illustrated by the international proliferation of courses, events, networks, journals, book series, monographs, edited collections, and so on. Though drawing on this progress substantially, the Disability Studies MA at Liverpool Hope University differs from similar programmes insofar as it places particular emphasis on cultural issues. We are not only interested in the policies, prejudices, and professions around disability, but also its representation in literature, media, film, art, and so on.
Liverpool Hope University is well suited as a host for this programme. The regional, national, and international profile of the programme is enhanced greatly by the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies–and, by extension, the Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies, the on-going seminar series, the International Network of Literary & Cultural Disability Scholars, the Literary Disability Studies book series, and an enthusiastic team of widely-published tutors.
The modules included are Critical Disability Theory; Disability and Professional Practice; Modelling Disability; Disability and Disciplines; Research Methods; and a Dissertation.
The taught elements of the course include, for full-time students, two evenings per week (6-9pm), and for part-time students, one evening per week. These classes are held at Hope Park on Mondays and Wednesdays.
