Student Curated Exhibit

Navigating Disability in 19th-Century America
The four display cases in this exhibit were curated by members of a combined undergraduate and graduate course on disability history and literature at the University of Michigan to convey what it was like to be disabled in the United States before the modern category of “disability” existed. Together, the artifacts gathered from the Clements Library collections provide a glimpse of the cruelties, triumphs, and intimate acts of care that shaped the lives of people with disabilities in the past.

The Clements Library is offering Open Hours Monday through Friday, from 12:00 pm – 4:30 pm. To attend a behind the scenes guided tour of the Library and the exhibit, please see the schedule at myumi.ch/Aw9Zb.

Curated By: Dr. Ittai Orr and the Students of English 420, Winter 2022, with Maggie Vanderford and Julie Fremuth at the Clements Library.
