Disability Heritage: From the Medieval to the Local


Created by Fitchburg State University students, this exhibit combines local history artifacts and stories with medieval artifacts and stories in order to highlight the lineage of disability and its presence throughout history. The purpose of the exhibit is to engage viewers in conversations about the history of disability and to explore how more distant heritage connects with local heritage. But, more importantly, the goal is to help make visible a heritage that is all too often marginalized and forgotten.

Heritages of Change


Heritages of Change is a collection of mini-exhibitions developed by Fitchburg State University Writing II students of Dr. Kisha Tracy (English Studies) for members of Adult Learning in the Fitchburg Area (ALFA) and the wider community. Each of the mini-exhibitions practices curatorial activism, bringing attention to the heritages of marginalized and emerging topics.

Members of ALFA worked with the students to brainstorm ideas, provide feedback on writing, and encourage their work.
