Pop Music and the Disabled Body, film of inaugural lecture

Research output: Other contribution


The wonderfully ephemeral world of popular music is not always thought of as an inclusive space for the disabled artist. But this lecture looks at ways in which pop and rock singers and bands have explored the experience of disability, and acted as advocates and activists for disability campaigns. Features discussion of music, media, song lyrics and performances.
