DRF News, Events and Conferences

Hello! Welcome to the Disability Research Forum…

Now into its sixth year, the Disability Research Forum (DRF) fosters informal networks of disability scholars and provide researchers with opportunities to present their work in a friendly and encouraging environment. Welcome to the first post of the new academic year.

Dates for upcoming seminars (2010-2011) are below.  We have tried to vary the day and time of the meetings to allow a range of people to attend. The names of presenters and titles of their papers will be posted here in due course.

# 1       Thurs. 14th October 2010: 11.30am-1.30pm

# 2       Mon. 15th November 2010: 12pm-2pm

# 3       Tues. 14th December 2010: 12pm-2pm

# 4       Tues. 15th February 2011: 1pm-3pm

If you, or anybody you know, would like to present at a DRF seminar please click here.  Alternatively, let us know if there is an issue/article/book you’d like to facilitate a round table discussion on. 

Even if you do not intend to present, feel free to come along, listen and share your thoughts.  

These informal seminars are held in Room 10111 (First Floor) Arundel Building, Charles Street, City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University, S1 1WB.  For lunchtime slots, please feel free to bring your own food and drink.
