The Centre runs a regular and lively Conversation Series featuring guest speakers from disabled people’s organisations, NGOs and academia. All of these events are open to members of the disability community and allies as well as to university staff and students.

We welcome suggestions for future guest speakers from academia, disability activism and the wider policy community.


We encourage our postgraduate students to run conferences and to take part in Faculty and School postgraduate conferences. In 2018 they were involved in a Disability Studies stream at the School of Sociology and Social Policy’s Annual Postgraduate Conference.
