Research project: Disability in Romanian History: Structures, Discourses, Silences

My project seeks to bring scholarly attention to the history of disabilities in Romania in the twentieth century. I will focus my research on three inter-related areas: 1. The science discourses about disability and policies they generated for persons with disabilities; 2. The ways in which persons with disabilities represented themselves in public interactions; and 3. Cultural representations of disability.
