Since the end of the 20th century, AdisabilityA has become a new and effective research instrument. One of the most important fields that currently make use of AdisabilityA as an analytical tool is history. In this collection of historical essays the editors have assembled innovative methodological approaches for doing disability history as well as new and inspiring case-studies. The book is structured into four main parts: Challenging methodologies, power and identity, travelling knowledge and emerging geographies.

At the heart of the reader one also finds the preoccupation of promoting the potentiality of AdisabilityA for future historical research.
