Lecture 1 (Introductory) of the ‘Social Inclusion and Disability’ Course
In this first lecture, the course will familiarize the participants with some of the already existing explanatory models that attempt to analyze and define disability. In this lecture you will hear about: 1) the importance of the topic of disability in contemporary social-political processes; 2) the main theoretical approaches to defining concepts such as “disability” and “illness”; 3) the conceptual differences between the presented explanatory models and definitions.
