The workshop aims to promote an international exchange of theoretical reflection, research and case studies about women and disability, in order to individuate and confront current perspectives and best practices in different disciplines. The workshop will host experts at European level in the fields linked to disability to discuss on disability under different point of views: social, psychological, political, medical, but above all technological.
The focus will be the woman with disability, together with the gendered approach to her social condition and technological knowledge.
