Crip Kid Lit Conference, April 2024

Description

The idea for this conference evolved from several PhD students at the Centre for Research in Children’s Literature at Cambridge working on or adjacent to disability studies who found that there had not been sufficient space yet to discuss their ideas, thoughts, and analyses. We therefore envisioned to provide fresh space for conversations about the representation of disability in texts for young people from an interdisciplinary and international perspective and to ask: what can disability studies do for children’s and young adult literature? And what can children’s and young adult literature do for disability studies? The symposium shall not only provide space for scholars already working on the discourse to connect, especially across various cultural, geographical, and disciplinary borders, as well as ideally get in touch with and exchange ideas with individuals from various backgrounds and professions, but also to encourage attendees not yet overly familiar with the discourse to be introduced to the field, consider disability studies as a framework for analyses, and potentially deconstruct ableist thinking and behaviour.

The full programme is available on our website.

What does it mean for a city to grow?, June 2024

Description

As planning academics living and working in Cambridge, we have become acutely aware of the mismatch between professional and public discourses on what it means for the city to grow. Particularly, the term ‘growth’ carries varying meanings for different individuals, e.g., for some people it is largely positive and growth brings opportunities for homes wealth and to solve existing problems cities like Cambridge face. But for others, it can also be threatening, much loved places change their character, environments can be damaged and what opportunities are created are not shared by everyone.

This public event aims to open up dialogues about 1) what it means for Cambridge to grow, and 2) how such a variety of perceptions could enable new visions of city development, drive behavioural changes and address major challenges through novel policymaking processes.

This event has two stages:

Stage 1: We invite your views on what growth means to YOU. Share your thoughts through participating our online survey. We plan to visualise anonymised public inputs through a small exhibition as part of Stage 2.

Stage 2: A one-day public event on 4 June 2024 with invited talks by field experts and thinkers. Invited speakers will be exposed to your inputs in Stage 1 prior to their talks, and are expected to reflect on their past experiences of planning and managing the growth in Cambridge.

The full programme is available at: www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/events/41983/
