2022 Disability Lecture
Dr Amy Kavanagh - Hands Off: Navigating unwanted touch, consent and disability
From Dr Kavanagh's introduction:
"So this lecture today is going to be an exploration of the disabled experience of unwanted touch, forced help and consent. I'm drawing on my lived experience as a blind activist, but I am also grateful to the hundreds of disabled people who have shared their stories, reflections and thoughts about their own experiences with me over the years. This lecture draws on the themes and consistent tropes surrounding unwanted touch and forced help. In doing so, I'd hope to draw some parallels between some of the wider challenges of also navigating cultural, social and economic disableism."
