Disability History Month - November - University of Derby

Disability History Month 22 November – 22 December

This year the theme is ‘Language and Disability’. The focus is on the language used throughout history to describe disabled people in literature and in the media and the language disabled people use to express themselves.

Interrogating the past can help to teach us how we can achieve full and equal rights in society for disabled people.
