A Wheelchair History of Disability in Canada
Carleton University researchers and Summit participants have released a project entitled A Wheelchair History of Disability in Canada.
“Old wheelchairs tell extraordinary stories about the people who used them, made them and lived around them. Dorothy collected their images and the information about them, determined to rescue from the past the beliefs, actions, hopes and hardships that surround these artifacts. We hope that the website will generate as many questions and surprises as we shared during the year of the making of this project.” Dominique Marshall, professor and chair of the Department of History.
