From subhuman to superhuman

Bioethicist and disability scholar Tom Shakespeare in conversation with Professor Andy Miah of Salford University and artist and poet Ju Gosling (Ju90). Are disabled people, with their prosthetics and implants, the new cyborgs of the future? Does Paralympic hype mean disability is finally sexy? Can Disability Art bring down austerity? This session explores disability in technology, sport and the arts.
