Disability through Myth:

Scholarship against discrimination

Changing modern ideas about disability

Discrimination of the disabled abounds in contemporary society. Often based on apparently historical precedent from the ancient world, it falsely colours our assumptions about people with disabilities both then and today.

We help to uncover the stories of disabled people in ancient myth and literature, as they often reveal a more positive narrative than people tend to think today.
