• Summary
  • Venue


Led by Heather Lacey (MRes Graduate, University of Hull), this session aims to showcase several literary portrayals of disability that – though largely unacknowledged – fulfil this remit, setting a precedent for future literary depictions of the disabled experience.

The characters being discussed have a variety of disabilities, including physical impairments, chronic pain, and mental illness. This session will uncover Heather’s own personal motivations for undertaking the research, and will draw upon personal experiences of both disability and literary study.

In presenting an aspect of her research, she hopes to reiterate the contemporary relevance of literary study by showcasing it alongside current sociological thinking, thus proving its potential to further both liberatory and emancipatory movements not only nationally, but globally.
