Disability is a multidimensional phenomenon; it is understood as a lived experience, a social practice, a cultural trope and an international policy issue. A growing body of knowledge investigates disability as a historical, social, political and cultural construction. In the age of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) discourses on disability can be traced throughout a multiplicity of histories, narratives, practices and policies. The existing landscape of innovative research and political interventions with respect to disability uses a broad spectrum of theoretical concepts, methodological and empirical approaches and ethical foundations; it draws on political and social sciences, historical research as well as cultural studies approaches. This conference aims to contribute to the thriving discourse of international, comparative and transdisciplinary disability research. It offers debates and conversations between various regions, many disciplines and different theoretical perspectives. It presents an inspiring platform for young scholars and senior researchers in disability research and critical disability studies.
