Dr Tom Campbell


I completed my first degree in Sociology, my MA in Social Research and my doctoral research, a genealogy of dyslexia, all here at the University of Leeds.  I work mainly in the areas of Social Theory and Disability Studies, influenced primarily by Michel Foucault, and in particular his writings of the early and mid nineteen-seventies.
