Date: 8 December 2009 Time: 15.00 pm

Venue: Room A75 School of Health & Medicine (Physics Building)

This is the first meeting of the newly established CeDR Reading Group which is open to all. The informal discussion will be an enjoyable way to advance our ideas and knowedge in Disability Studies.

The readings for the first meeting are both by Bill Hughes (and available via metalib)

Hughes, B. (2006) 'Disability activisms: social model stalwarts and biological citizens', Disability & Society,24: 6, 677 688

Hughes, B. (2006) Being disabled: towards a critical social ontology for disability studies', Disability &Society, 22: 7, 673 684

Readers new to Bill Hughes' work may find his now classic article written with Kevin Paterson helpful background reading:
