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.
