Beauty, Desirability and Norms- Gender and Disability Conference

I was lucky enough to be part of a panel at the Gender and Disability conference  on 10th May, hosted by the Gender Research Network at University of Sheffield and the Disability Research Forum at Sheffield Hallam University.

Along with Mathy Selvakumaran (University of Sheffield), I discussed things such as stereotypes, beauty norms, body image, clothing and the idea of disabled bodies as public bodies.

It was a really great panel to be a part of, which created some good discussion and questions from the audience.

Alternatively, if you would like to read the notes from my part of the presentation, you can email me and I’ll send them to you (email address on the contact page)
