Explore our reading list and discover books and resources which celebrate achievements and challenges overcome
Get involved for Disability History Month!
Student Services, Information Services and Kent Union have created a virtual reading list for students and staff who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies. This reading list links with Disability History Month 2020, features over 45 titles, resources and links. They explore and celebrate achievements and challenges through experiences of disablement both historically and in the world today.
Some of these resources are available to borrow from the Templeman or the Drill Hall libraries, or to purchase from Blackwell’s book shop on the Canterbury campus, whilst others you will need to source yourself. We have also included multimedia and audiovisual resources such as podcasts, online free events, radio programmes and TED talks. We hope you enjoy them. Challenge yourself – how many can you access before Christmas?
