The programme offers theological ways of seeing ‘disability’ as transformative for understanding what it means to be human and the nature of the good life. Situated in the Department of Divinity and Religious Studies, the programme approaches the questions and issues studied theologically, whilst drawing on interdisciplinary perspectives.
