Dr Howard Leicester will be at the University on Wednesday 12 October to deliver a talk about academia and accessibility. He is a very funny and engaging speaker and has done lots of work with the NHS’s Accessible Information Standard so has lots of really interesting things to say about academic life, undertaking research and advocacy in the public sector.
What is particularly extraordinary about Howard is that he has progressive deafblindness and has a very powerful story to tell about potential barriers to access.
It would be great if as many people as possible can attend. He will speak in the Templeman Lecture theatre between 15.00-16.00 on Wednesday 12 October. No need to book or RSVP.
