On 17 November, 6pm we will welcome Dr Graham for a lecture as part of UK Disability History Month.
In this talk Emma-Jayne Graham uses archaeological evidence from Ancient Rome to explore disability in the classical world. She uses votives – models of the human body made as offerings to the gods – to ask what it was like to have a physical impairment in Roman Italy. This is a joint paper with the Manchester Classical Association and Manchester Centre for Public History and Heritage.
Dr Emma-Jayne Graham is a Senior Lecturer in Classical Studies at the Open University with expertise in Ancient Rome. She uses archaeological remains to explore ideas about religion and disability in Roman Italy, her most recent book is Reassembling Religion in Roman Italy (2021).
This is part of a series of four lectures marking Disability History Month.
