On October 28, 2016, Hagley Museum and Library will host a conference, "Making Modern Disability: Histories of Disability, Design, and Technology," which will explore the history of modern design and technology with regard to disability. The organizers note, "While devices adapted to the needs of people with disabilities can be found throughout human history, industrialization created distinctive circumstances for the material lives of the disabled." The program is available here . Advance registration for the conference is required, but there is no fee. Lunch on site can be purchased in advance for $15.
