Welcome to Effaced from History

This is the blog of the project ‘Effaced from History? The Disfigured and their Stories from Antiquity to the Present Day’ (Wellcome Grant no 107780).

We’re already reviewing that category ‘the disfigured’ in favour of ‘people with facial differences’ – whether the historical and literary sources we’ll be exploring are similarly sensitive in their language remains to be seen. Read on to find out what we’ll be doing and how you can get involved!
