Research interests

Dr Sonali Shah is Lord Kelvin Adam Smith Senior Research Fellow at Strathclyde Centre for Disability Research at Glasgow University. She adopts an interdisciplinary approach to her research and scholarship. A key concern is social inclusion and social equity for disabled people - across different ages, genders and ethnicities – in a national and international context. Shah’s work uses different innovative methodologies – including biographical narrative and theatre techniques - to ensure the voices of historically marginalised and oppressed populations are listened to and included in policies and practices that affect their well-being and participation in society.

In 2013-2015 Shah was the Principal Investigator (Manager) for the UK partner country of the present Daphne III 2007-2013 project, Access to Services for Disabled Women who Experience Violence, working in partnership with Austria, Germany and Iceland. She has published and presented the work widely to ensure this research can be used to improve the development of services for disabled women and girls who have experienced domestic violence in the U.K.

Other research projects include:

A socio-cultural exploration of the lives of polio survivors through the interdisciplinary lens of narrative and performance (2015) - a two-stage interdisciplinary study, supported by an internal fund at the University of Glasgow, to explore how drama-based methods can develop creative ways to inform services, practitioners and new generation audiences about the real life experiences of paralytic polio and post polio syndrome for survivors who grew up in the UK.
