Disability Studies in Singapore

iHuman colleagues are working alongside advocates and academics in Singapore

Dan Goodley travelled to Singapore last week to share plans in relation to new research that will explore the health priorities of disabled people while opening up anti-ableist and anti-disablist practice in university, research and science environments. 

Collaborating with disabled academics like Associate Professor Dr Meng Ee Wong from the National Institute of Education / Nanyang Technological University gives us real opportunities for foregrounding the health priorities of disabled people while also interrogating our research cultures to ensure these priorities are made front and centre of our thinking.

Dan also had the opportunity to meet members of Disabled People's Association of Singapore who are leading advocates for disabled people in the country. These meetings and discussions are feeding into a new programme of research that iHuman hopes to announce in the new year.

Our work

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.

Centres of excellence

The University's cross-faculty research centres harness our interdisciplinary expertise to solve the world's most pressing challenges.
