PerformAbility One-day Symposium

PerformAbility One-day Symposium

Date:  12 April 2024
Location: Room B112.B (School of Arts and Humanities, University of Lisbon,) and online via Zoom

A result of the collaboration between the PerformAbility Project (Skenè Research Centre, University of Verona) and the Project in Medical Humanities (School of Arts and Humanities, University of Lisbon), this one-day symposium aims to widen the dialogue between Disability Studies and Narrative Medicine. Starting from the study of disability in its cultural, discursive, and performative dimensions, this event will seek to explore possible synergies between Disability Studies and Medical Humanities along these lines: theatre and performance, education, and lived experiences of disability.

Participants will speak in Portuguese and English.

The Symposium is free of charge and open to the public.
