World TB Day
(26th March) A day of speakers and discussion to mark World TB Day
Leonard Cheshire Disability and Inclusive Development Centre
Speakers: Dr Ilan Kelman (in person), Professor Laura Stough (by Skype)
This presentation covers the contents of a book to be
published in 2014 which presents first-hand accounts of people with
disabilities dealing with disaster risk reduction (before a disaster) and
disaster response (during and after a disaster). The book's premise is to shape
directions for disaster research and disability studies theory and practice
through the eyes of people with disabilities. Key lessons, anecdotes,
limitations, and suggestions for the future are presented.
Speakers: Dr Mary Wickenden, Dr Katie Caryer, Carole Pound and Jasvinder Khosa
This series of presentations will explore identity and meanings of friendship in the context of communication disability. Dr Wickenden will discuss the nature of identity with teenagers who use alternative and augmentative communication (AAC), with particular focus on their thoughts about friendships. Carole Pound and Jasvinder Khosa will present findings that draw upon on the personal experiences of disabled people who use AAC or have aphasia following stroke.
