Hello and welcome to the blog!
The aim of this blog is to document findings on the research of disability in the nineteenth century. This blog is run by four students at Swansea University along with the guidance of D.M Turner, an historian who specializes in disability history. We will make visits to archives, research and also read upon disability in the nineteenth century and present this information through this blog and various other outputs (links will be posted). We hope that the readers find this topic as interesting as we do as we believe that disability in history deserves wide scale attention and also appreciation, to perhaps change the way we think about disability in the past and hopefully how we think about disability in the present.
We hope you enjoy this journey with us and feel free to ask any questions or get in touch!
