Anthropology/History

Lives of and attitudes towards Disabled people in various cultures, various eras.

How much does the uninformed writings of historians and anthropologists contribute to present day discrimination and the mirror of this - the relationship between present attitudes about Disabled people and the way research material, i.e., documentation, artifacts, images, peoples, must then be viewed and written about?

If you have been culturally conditioned to disregard completely the lives and qualities of a group of people, could you in any way become aware of them and their real position in past societies you were studying? If you judge their lives as medical or charity objects/processes, during your own lifetime, could you possibly see them regarded in different ways by other peoples?

When material can't be found or where research is beyond energy, facilities, resources - not wanting the process to be censored by the usual discriminations we contend with - QUESTIONS, STATEMENTS, IMAGININGS are used. Asking questions to develop an analysis of disability. Juxtaposing statements thereby raising questions.

Using these to cover what is not known, show the fact that it's not known and why. Also showing the difficulties in undertaking research and why bodies of analysis and history are not numerous, with the ignorant and unaware non-disabled bias, of any which are.

There is overlap, fracture, association and non-association reflecting our experience - this is important, things aren't finished and smooth in life, particularly when you're disabled.
