The Equality and Diversity Unit and TORCH are delighted to announce that Gwyneth Lewis will give the 2018 Disability Lecture.
From Gwyneth Lewis's introduction to her lecture:
"All good education should cause what feels like an intellectual nervous breakdown in the student. Otherwise, the institution isn’t doing its job of challenging them to abandon old ideas and to grow. For the vast majority of students, this is a benign crisis, somewhat stressful, but which can, nevertheless, can be negotiated. What you don’t want is an actual breakdown. Then it is the duty of the university and the NHS to catch the bodies as they fall."
