Vulnerability Across Disciplines

Vulnerability Across Disciplines

'Vulnerability Across Disciplines' - an online conference

We look forward to welcoming all guests and speakers to 'Vulnerability Across Disciplines' two-day conference.

The use of vulnerability theory has grown significantly over the last years. Depending on the discipline and/or topic area vulnerability is viewed from different perspectives and takes on a variety of meanings. This conference will bring together researchers from law, economics and education, charity workers and regulators to explore the topic of vulnerability to discuss overlaps and discrepancies in the general approach to vulnerability.

The keynote speaker is Prof Martha Fineman and a full list of confirmed speakers is below.

The conference will be held via Zoom on the 7th and 8th October at 09:30 GMT.
