About the Event

The BSA’s Disability Study Group invites you to attend the webinar series, Disability and Health Inequalities in Times of COVID-19. The webinars will take place over five Thursday afternoons in June-July 2020, between 3.45-5pm. Each webinar consists of 3-4 presentations, of each 10-15 minutes long. Each presentation concerns a reflection on or analysis of disability and/or health inequalities in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and responses thereto.

The programme is interdisciplinary and thematically and methodologically diverse, and we are very excited about this. At the end of each webinar the hosts will take questions to the presenters.
