This is a video in our disCOVER series: where we speak to disability experts, activists and researchers to learn more about challenging disabling society. In this video Hannah Derbyshire shares some of her experiences and educates us about important issues such as inclusive work experience, great holidays, supportive friends and Burnley FC.
Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) offers disability studies teaching and research at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the academic departments of Education, English, Law, Psychology, Social Change and Sociology.
Critical disability studies at our university aim to understand and challenge exclusionary and oppressive practices associated with disablism and consider the ways these intersect with other forms of marginalisation including hetero/sexism, racism, poverty and imperialism.
