International Study Day
« Colonialism and Disability »

Lundi 20 juin 2016, EHESS, 190-198 avenue de France, Paris,
8e étage, Salle Jean-Pierre Vernant.

This study day focuses on the theme ‘Colonialism and Disability’ and it aims to discuss policies for assisting people with disabilities in imperial contexts (French, Italian, Belgian) and the situation of disabled persons in colonial settings in the 19th and 20th centuries. It aims to provide comparative perspectives on empires and also seeks to accentuate the inter- and intra-imperial circulation of ideas, materials and individuals related to people with various disabilities (deaf, blind, those with leprosy etc.).  Last but not least, the workshop investigates the persistence of postcolonial tensions in the development of international disability policies.
