Disability History Month
You are all warmly invited to a joint event between Univ, Oriel, Christchurch and Corpus Christi Colleges to mark Disability History Month. We’re delighted to be welcoming Dr Hannah Barham Brown to talk to us on 2 December at 5pm, in the Harris Lecture Theatre, Oriel College.
Dr Barham Brown has an illustrious speaking career, with two TEDx talks, numerous appearances on BBC Breakfast and Sky News, and she co-hosts the Salty Women podcast. Dr Barham Brown will be speaking to us about her experiences as a disabled woman in education, medicine and politics, including how important it is that the NHS and politics represent the population they serve. She completed her first degree in Combined Arts at Durham University. She then completed a degree in Paediatric Nursing followed by a postgraduate medicine degree. She is now a trainee GP, so her experiences should be of interest to most! Alongside all this she is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and Deputy Leader (Making Change Happen) for the Women’s Equality Party.
Rebecca Colquhoun (2020, DPhil Environmental Research), WCR Students with Disabilities and Accessibility Officer, commented, “I’m thrilled that College are supporting our event — Disability History Month is a great opportunity to celebrate our lives as disabled people, and so it’s fantastic to see that marked in College.”
Please register for the talk by Tuesday 30 November, through this form.
The venue has step-free access, though there is a small cobblestone ramp to navigate, and there is an accessible toilet next to the lecture theatre. A hearing loop can be provided. Please do not hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any further accessibility requirements or questions.
