Brown, Nicole, Ed.; Leigh, Jennifer, Ed. – UCL Press, 2020
Rather than embracing difference as a reflection of wider society, academic ecosystems seek to normalise and homogenise ways of working and of being a researcher. As a consequence, ableism in academia is endemic. However, to date no attempt has been made to theorise experiences of ableism in academia. "Ableism in Academia" provides an…

Blatchford, Peter; Russell, Anthony – UCL Press, 2020
