Episode 8 – Disability History and the Disabled Peoples’ Archive: Dr Rosamund Oates, Lorna Young, and Siobhan O’Connor

UK Disability History Month takes place during November and December. We are delighted to be marking it with our involvement in four public lectures, and by participating in the International Day of Disabled People’s event on 3 December at Manchester Central Library.

During the latest episode we welcomed Lorna Young, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion manager at Manchester City Council, Siobhan O’Connor, Service Development Coordinator at Manchester Libraries, and Dr Rosamund Oates, Reader in the History Research Centre. Have a listen to our discussion on disabled people’s history and the disabled people’s archive.
