What is innovative on Public Disability History?

We think that Disability History is an undertaking which is ideally democratic, open and emancipatory. This blog is a way of implementing that approach in a mode of communicating and disseminating. Furthermore, it combines different existing research traditions – public history, disability history, heritage and performance studies etc. – in a way that a discussion-friendly and accessible to everyone, thus providing the opportunity for those interested in overcoming dichotomous thinking and speaking.
