Good afternoon everybody. The University of Kent have just released this interview with Prof. Mike Oliver, one of the instigators of the social model of disability. He was also the first professor of disability studies at the University of Greenwich and taught me as an undergraduate.

    Hi @melaniethorley

    Thank you for sharing the interview with us. Mike Oliver was a key theorist within my previous Masters assessment about the social and medical models of disability. Have any of our community members seen this video? I would be interested in hearing your thoughts about this  :)
