Disability+Intersectionality is a fortnightly reading group based at King’s College London which meets to discuss key texts in critical disability studies, situating them within the broader context of the humanities and social sciences. Each session will focus on a theme and explore how disability intersects with categories such as gender, race, sexuality, and class.   

The organisers (Christina Lee and Savannah Whaley, the Department of English, King’s College London) warmly invite scholars across disciplines. Everyone is welcome, there is no need to book. It would be great to see you even if you have not had a chance to complete the readings.
