Promoting disability studies

Andrew Azzopardi, a senior lecturer at the University’s Department of Youth and Community Studies recently returned from a conference held by the Univeristà degli Studi Magna Graecia di Catanzaro in Italy, where he presented a paper and recommended a strategy on the development of disability studies in this region.

The paper was presented to­gether with Anna Lawson from the Disability Studies Centre at Leeds University.

Dr Azzopardi was previously actively involved in the setting up of the disability studies programme at the University of Minnesota, the US.

Dr Azzopardi and colleagues at the University of Malta have also helped set up a new postgraduate degree in Disability Studies at the recently established Faculty for Social Wellbeing.
