Welcome to Turku, and welcome to the 12th biannual research conference of
NNDR, the Nordic Network on Disability Research. This conference brings
together researchers, policy makers, activists and practitioners to share
scholarship and ideas, and provides a forum for international collaboration in
disability studies. NNDR is a multidisciplinary network of researchers. We
welcome a wide range of contributions applying social, cultural, historical and
philosophical perspectives to the study of disability.
Disability studies is a relatively new field where various theories and
viewpoints coexist, and contribute to the development of the field. We wish to
celebrate this diversity by welcoming a mixture of viewpoints, theoretical
accounts and practical applications covering humanities, social sciences and
various applied sciences such as education, law and urban design.
On behalf of the Conference Committee
Joel Kivirauma, Professor, University of Turku
Simo Vehmas, Professor, University of Jyväskylä, President of NNDR
