Our second anniversary letter

Dear Blind Creations speakers and delegates,

On this, the second anniversary of Blind Creations, we would like to thank you once more for your contribution to the conference and its legacy. Many of you continue to work on projects related to the conference themes and we are delighted to see how many new projects and collaborations have emerged from it. We always love hearing about ongoing work so please do remember to keep us up-to-date with your projects. This conference website is still live (but quiet) and we are always happy to advertise new books, conferences and events on it. Please send any announcements to Hannah. We have enjoyed speaking about the conference at events in Boston and Montreal over the past 18 months and are working on a Disability Studies Quarterly(DSQ) special issue featuring several of our speakers based on themes from the conference. More news on that, and the French special issue of theRevue canadienne des ├ętudes sur le handicapwhich Hannah is co-editing with Maria Arentsen, will be coming in 2018.

We wish you all a happy and productive summer and looking forward to hearing your news.

With warm wishes,

Hannah and Vanessa
