CfP: 6th Annual conference of ALTER 2017. 6 – 7 July 2017, Lausanne (CH)

Disability, Recognition and “Community living”. Diversity of practises and plurality of values

The 6th Annual Conference of ALTER – European Society for Disability Research – aims to offer a European and international multidisciplinary view of disability research, taking into account both philosophical, socio-historical and political dimensions and subjective experiences of disability. It proposes to illuminate the diversity in forms of “community living”, as they are conceived, implemented and lived on different territorial scales (nations, regions, departments, cantons, communes) in relation to the wide variety of socio-historical, political and cultural configurations.

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts for the sixth Annual Conference of Alter before 22 January 2017. It is possible to submit individual abstracts or suggest organising a session of 3 presentations focusing on the same theme. We particularly encourage comparative and international sessions. Researchers wishing to suggest a session are invited to submit both an individual abstract of their paper and an abstract describing the joint session and its participants.
