School of English Evening Lecture Series 2014: 'Disability and Literature'
This nine-week lecture series explores issues of disability in literature, from the early modern period to the present. It includes discussions of representations of disability in literary texts – incorporating the image of the Fool in Renaissance theatre, for instance, as well as the discourse of physical disability in Victorian writing, and blindness in contemporary literature. In addition, the lecture series engages with works by disabled artists and writers. The innovative series is organised by the School of English in conjunction with the MSc in Disability Studies, and draws on the expertise of colleagues in relevant areas in College.
