Alt futures project description

My current project (Alternative Futures, funded by the AHRC, role C.I. Oct 2014 – March 2015) involves working collaboratively with artists, academics and activists who identify as disabled. We are designing research on the topic of enfranchisement, community, representation and marginalization, while developing embodied, performative and textual methodologies. Our interdisciplinary work is driven by critical and cultural disability theory, and it is informed by lived experience of disability. As such, it offers an ethical and political alternative to non-reflexive clinical and applied research that conceptualizes disability as deficit.
