This year's theme of International Day of People with Disabilities is invisible disabilities. Two students share their experiences of studying with a disability during the Covid-19 pandemic and introduce the project Drempelloos Studeren.
Disability is often a non-topic in academia. How can the scientific community unlock the potential of lived experiences of students and staff with disabilities? PhD researchers Anaïs van Ertvelde and Andries Hiskes get into a conversation about experiential knowledge, representation and access.
It is becoming increasingly clear that the corona virus has never been ‘the great equalizer’. Instead, the pandemic reinforces existing differences and increases the inequitable situation of a number of communities. Amongst them are students and staff with disabilities within our academic community.
