Announcement: Bursaries for Theorising Normalcy and the Mundane Conference, Manchester, July 2016

A reminder that the early bird registration for Theorising Normalcy and the Mundane ends on 28th January 2016. There has also been an announcement for bursaries for the conference (more info on the conference, here):

“We are pleased to announce that we have 5 free places available to attend Theorising Normalcy and the Mundane. Priority for these places will go to unwaged and low waged disabled people and people of colour* (disabled and non-disabled) in the first instance. Please note that a free delegate place does not include funding for other expenses (e.g. travel and accommodation). If you would like to apply for a free space please send a short paragraph stating why you want to attend Normalcy to k.liddiard@sheffield.ac.uk

*We are prioritising people of colour alongside disabled people for these free places to acknowledge the Whiteness of Disability Studies, particularly in the UK, and in order to broaden networks and consciously work to include the experiences of people of colour.”
