Equity Events

Events to promote equity are held throughout the year, across the University. Equity news items are shared to highlight important issues and key successes.

Disability Studies at the University of Auckland Seminar

Below are details of an invitation for all University of Auckland staff and research students working with, or interested in Disability Studies as a theoretical lens to join us on Tuesday 19 June, 2018.

We are fortunate to have an international leading Disability Studies scholar visiting as a Distinguished Visiting Fellow. Professor Susan Gabel has published widely, including recent articles in the Journal of Medical Humanities, and in a press article in Hypatia, Journal of Feminist Philosophy. Susan helped establish the Disability Studies in Education special interest group of the American Educational Research Association. Susan will present on her recent work on 19 June (more details to follow).

Two elements to the invitation

1. Would you be interested and available to present something on your work? This could be a completed project, a work in progress, a proposal for a project. In this way we can learn more about colleagues who share interest in Disability Studies.
2. Would you be interested in attending the seminar? 

Seminar Details:

Date: Tuesday, 19 June (time TBC)
Building 260 - Room 040C 12 Grafton Rd, Auckland


If you would like to come in either capacity or would be interested in future events, please RSVP to Julie Bringans directly.
