Social History of Learning Disability Conference

The theme of this year's conference is:

Exploring Learning Disability: Why history?

Papers at this year's SHLD conference will consider the ways in which history and knowledge of the past can contribute to political change and social justice. We will reflect on whether history can help to create a more inclusive society and inform current debates about the lives of people with learning disabilities today, and in the future. Our discussions will be informed by international and UK based papers, as well as workshops, and themed panels.

Date: Thursday 7th and Friday 8th July 2016

Time: 10.00am - 4.15pm

Location: Rooms 1-4, Michael Young Building, The Open University, Walton Hall, MK7 6AA
