Centre for Culture & Disability Studies[edit]

Bolt is the director of the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies (CCDS; Graduate School, Faculty of Education, Liverpool Hope University). The work of CCDS is fundamentally concerned with social justice: with challenging and changing the inequalities and prejudices that people who are disabled face on a daily basis.

Key areas of interest include:

  • The analysis of representations of disability in all forms of cultural production (e.g., literature, film, art, advertising, television, etc.), and how these shape wider public understandings of disability.
  • Curricular reform at all levels of education.
