Abstract

This article analyses disabilities in British academic workplaces and how they intersect with academic careers, lifestyles and workplaces. First, it discusses the experiences of those geographers who are active and politicised in relation to their disabilities, and have worked to effect inclusionary change in their institutional and disciplinary spaces. Second, it highlights the experiences of geographers with mental health conditions that are undisclosed in workplace contexts. It concludes that these data should prompt reflection on the institutional and disciplinary spaces the researchers inhabit and constitute, especially how spaces of academia may be ‘conducive to poor mental health
