Accessibility

Accessibility has become one of my greatest interests, due to personal reasons and my dissertation research.

The research has grown to become a book, published by Rowman and Littlefield in July 2014.  You can order the book online from their website at: https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781442227606

Research regarding the history of accessibility, disability, and museums is also available in various forms.  The American Association of State and Local History published my article The Legacy of the Freakshow in Museums in the national magazine, AASLH History News, in the Fall 2013 edition.
