Welcome to the archive of the 2nd Disability Studies Conference. The conference was jointly organised by Lancaster, Leeds and York universities. It took place on 26-28 July 2004 and was entitled Disability Studies: Putting Theory Into Practice.

Disability Studies is concerned with the inter-disciplinary development of an increasing body of knowledge and practice, which has arisen from the activities of the disabled people's movement, and which has come to be known as 'the social model of disability'. The social model of disability locates the changing character of disability, which is viewed as an important dimension of inequality, in the social and economic structure and culture of the society in which it is found, rather than in individual limitations.
