Disability Studies Conference (2024)

The next Disability Studies Conference will take place from 3 to 5 September 2024 on the University of Leeds campus.

The Centre for Disability Studies is launching a new biennial Disability Studies Conference to create a space where researchers, practitioners, policy makers and activists from around the world can come together to share and debate ideas, research and challenges in and for Disability Studies. 

Bookings are now open for the 2024 Conference, which is due to take place in the Esther Simpson Building and Newlyn Building on the University of Leeds campus. 

There is a remote attendance option where the conference app can be used to watch recorded presentations, view uploaded material from presenters and other contributors and to network and connect with other participants.

Concessionary rates are available for both in-person and virtual attendance. Early bird rates are available until 20 June 2024. The last date for booking is 1 August 2024. 

A limited number of reduced-rate bursaries are available – applications for these must be submitted by 31 May 2024.

The Centre for Disability Studies Conference website includes all booking information, such as rates, bursaries, accommodation and the link to the booking site.
