The Institute is well represented in a just-published special issue of Pennsylvania History - A Journal of Mid-Atlantic Studies, the official journal of the Pennsylvania Historical Association.

The special issue titled Exploring Disability History in Pennsylvania is devoted to the rich history of Pennsylvania's disability studies, and to the variety of archival collections and organizational resources available to scholars interested in the field. The collection of essays is meant to encourage inquiry and exploration of the institutional, ideological, and individual life stories of people with disabilities in the Commonwealth.

The Institute's Associate Director of Academic Programs, Kate Fialkowski, and Lisa Sonneborn, Director of Media Arts and Culture, teams up with Margery Sly, Temple's Charles Library Department Administrator on the article "Temple University's Intellectual Disability Collection: Collaboration, Education, and Engagement."

Guy Caruso, the Institute's Western Coordinator co-authored the article "The Western Pennsylvania Disability History and Action Consortium" along with Tina Calabro, from the Western PA Disability History and Action Consortium.

Both articles are available on our website:
