  1. Hey! I noticed you on Twitter and I had a look at your blog – I think your area of research looks really interesting and I hope you manage to survive the PhD process!

    I’m largely a theory-void on the subjects you’re tackling so I look forwards to hearing more about them.

    Good luck!

  2. Hi Naomi,
    Your blog looks really interesting. Looking forward to reading more about your research too. It is a small and specialist area which needs some attention!

  3. I don’t know if I told you this, but I was genuinely surprised when the vicar came over to plan mum’s funeral and I asked him about what sort of language he was planning to use around disability to make sure he wasn’t going to ruin her funeral by describing her as “handicapped” or “suffering from”.

    When he said he understood the social model you could’ve scraped my jaw off the floor. Which probably says more about my prejudices against vicars and an assumption they’ll approach disability from a pity perspective.
