Paris – Conference 2015

Questioning contemporary societies through the lens of disability

Website of the conference

Presentation

The conference is organised in the context of the annual meeting of AlterEuropean Society for Disability Research / Société Européenne de Recherche sur le Handicap. Its goal is to offer a European and international multidisciplinary view of disability research, across its whole spectrum, addressing sociohistorical and political dimensions as well as the subjective experiences of the actors concerned (disabled persons themselves and those close to them, professionals of the field and other social and political actors), but also considering disability as a category of analysis likely to shed light on the modes of organisation of contemporary societies.

The 2015 theme of the conference is “Questioning contemporary societies through the lens of disability” .
