Centre for Disability Studies (University of Leeds) seminar series session: Supporting people with mobility impairments in sexual engagement – what is the role of law and policy?

The next Centre for Disability Studies Seminar series session will be presented by Julia Bahner from the School of Sociology and Social Policy, on the 7th of February in G.28 of the Liberty Building at the University of Leeds at 2-3.30pm:

Supporting people with mobility impairments in sexual engagement – what is the role of law and policy?

 Julia Bahner is Marie Curie postdoctoral research fellow in the School of Sociology and Social Policy. Her project Sexual Citizenship and Disability – Implications for Theory, Policy, and Practice explores how issues around sexual support needs of people with mobility impairments (who have mental capacity) are framed within disability and sexual health policies as well as in political advocacy work by disability rights and sexual health and rights organisations. It is a comparative case study of the UK, the Netherlands and Australia.

 This will be a work-in-progress seminar where a preliminary policy analysis of the UK case will be presented, and a paper is available in advance if anyone would like to read Julia’s work in more detail prior to the seminar. In case you would like to have a copy, please email to cds-bounces@lists.leeds.ac.uk
