Presentation of the conference

The conference is organised in the context of the annual meeting of Alter - European Society for Disability Research. Its goal is to offer a European and international multidisciplinary view of disability research, across its whole spectrum, addressing sociohistorical and political dimensions as well as the subjective experiences of the actors concerned (disabled persons themselves and those close to them, professionals of the field and other social and political actors).Considering disability as a category of analysis is also likely to shed light on the modes of organisation of contemporary societies.

The language of the conference is English (with live captioning during joint sessions and one parallel session). The venue of the Fifth Annual Conference of Alter is Stockholm University, located close to Stockholm City centre.

In order to register for the conference you have to create an account to the left under the headline My Space. (If  you attended the Fourth Annual Conference of Alter in Paris, you can use the same login and password as last year).

Please observe that we need to have received your registration (and payment) by 15 May at the latest if you want to attend the reception.

Registration deadline: 8 June.
