The workshop at Lancaster University on Friday 20th September 2013 will bring together ten experts with a shared interest in albinism from the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada and Africa. These experts come from different academic backgrounds. Their research interests range from genetics to the socio-cultural realities of living with the condition in sub-Saharan Africa, through education to cultural representations of albinism. Although part of an international network, these experts have not until now had the opportunity to meet and discuss their shared knowledge of albinism with a view to developing a fuller understanding of an intrinsically interdisciplinary, socially informative phenomenon.
