Slide Share: “Mental Capacity and Research Participation: A Disability Studies Approach?” (University of Leeds, 12th December, 2017)

By Gill Loomes – 20th December, 2017

In this post, I’m sharing the slides and notes from a seminar I gave for the Centre for Disability Studies, University of Leeds, on 12th December 2017. (You can find out more about the Centre and its work here – including a link to Disability Archive UK, which contains open access research and discussion that’s useful to anyone with an interest in disability-related scholar activism.)

My next post will include video footage of the talk, and a written summary of the discussion that took place afterwards.

I’m really grateful to the University of Leeds Centre for Disability Studies for hosting, the seminar. And to the people who came, and who contributed their thoughts and experiences to what was a really stimulating and useful discussion.
