As it is disability history month, the University of Dundee will be holding the inaugural Annual Disability Awareness Lecture on the 3rd of December at 4pm.

The lecture is being held in the honour of the late Mr Eddie Small, an active member of the Disabled Staff Network, a historian, playwright, creative writing tutor and Public Engagement Officer in the School of Humanities at the University of Dundee.

In this year’s lecture, John Horon will be highlighting his background as a disabled barrister as well as exploring the theme of ‘doublespeak’ in accessing justice for disabled people. He will be joined by Fiona Kumari Campbell FRSA, Professor of Disability and Ableism Studies, School of Education and Social Work at the University of Dundee. There will also be an opportunity to talk and ask questions after the lecture.

Keep an eye out for more events taking place  until the 18th of December.
