Nancy Hansen is one of the editors of The Routledge History of Disability and the director of the interdisciplinary master’s program in disability studies at the University of Manitoba.

A new book co-edited by a University of Manitoba professor is exploring the role people with disabilities have played throughout history in cultures across the world.
