Lunchtime seminar: Dr. Supriya Akerkar

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


Glass Tank, Abercrombie Building, Headington Campus


Dr Akerkar will share her main findings from her current research on age and disability capacity project (ADCAP), highlighting how significations of persons with disabilities act as significant barriers to their inclusion in humanitarian responses. Responding organisations often make discursive assumptions about people with disabilities and their operational environments, normalizing them rather than critically questioning them. The ADCAP programme has partnered with international organisations who have questioned these discourses in their organisational work. Learnings from this ADCAP experience will be captured in her talk. Dr Richard Carver will be the discussant for her talk.

This seminar forms part of the Oxford Human Rights Festival.
