Re-thinking the Body aims to explore different ways in which disability has been represented and (mis)understood in society and culture. UCA’s Archives invited students to each produce new work which imaginatively responded to particular areas of our collection, including Tessa Boffin’s Photography Archive, themes related to sexual identity, and the Working Press archive. Participants also took inspiration from material related to mental health, language and terminology of disability, body image, gender roles, invisible disabilities, the idea of labelling, and the materiality of the archive.

Re-thinking the Body coincides with Disability Month (November 2015) and involves current undergraduate and postgraduate students studying at UCA, Farnham.
