Disability matters in Denmark
iHuman’s Dan Goodley joined a panel of speakers - including disabled activists, architects and inclusive designers - and shared a keynote lecture at the Royal Danish Academy in Copenhagan on November 3rd). The event was hosted by Bevica Fonden and provided an opportunity for Dan to share ideas from a new project (coming in 2023) entitled ‘Disability Matters)’ - which argues that all disciplines across the human, social and natural sciences would benefit from foregrounding disability as the driving subject of inquiry.
How we understand being ‘human’ differs between disciplines and has changed radically over time. We are living in an age marked by rapid growth in knowledge about the human body and brain, and new technologies with the potential to change them.
The University’s four flagship institutes bring together our key strengths to tackle global issues, turning interdisciplinary and translational research into real-world solutions.
