Call For Proposals: Institutional Survivorship
The Huronia Regional Centre, a residential facility for persons diagnosed with intellectual disabilities, operated in Ontario for 133 years until after a long and difficult history it was shut down in 2009. In this special journal issue, in honour of the work accomplished by Huronia survivors, we are interested in the experiences of disability and disablement both within and beyond experiences of institutionalization, and look to explore the meaning of survivorship as it pertains to institutionalization and disability.
