Call for proposals: The NNDR 13th Research Conference, Bergen, May 6.-8.2015
NNDR (Nordic Network on Disability Research) conferences brings together researchers, policy makers, activists and practitioners to share scholarship and ideas, and provides a forum for Nordic and international collaboration in disability studies.
The conference welcomes a wide range of contributions applying social, cultural, historical and philosophical perspectives to the study of disability. Its next conference will be held in the historic Norwegian town of Bergen, May 6 - 8, 2015.
The NNDR 13th Research Conference aims at giving new insights into frontline topics, questions and approaches within contemporary Disability Research and will in our plenary session raise the following question: What characterises disability studies as a field? What impact does technology and innovation have on the field? How has the concept of gender been dwelt upon? What are transnational issues in the disability field? What are seen as disabling conditions or practices?
The NNDR conference welcomes a wide range of contributions applying social, cultural, historical and philosophical perspectives to the study of disability.
We especially welcome papers within the following themes:
• Art and disability
