Disability History Month

 

Disability History Month is an opportunity to celebrate and commemorate the individuals and events which have shaped disabled communities, as well as our collective history.

 

It also provides space for disabled students to explore and articulate their own experiences, and a focus for the whole University community to discuss and address the on-going challenges facing disabled communities in Britain and around the world.

 

The Students' Association's Disability History Month celebrations take place during November and are led by our Disabled Students' Officer, who this year is Chloë Marvin. This year we marked the month with a programme of 10 events - including a talk with comedian Francesca Martinez - and a campaign challenging the stigma and stereotypes around disability.
