On this brand new series on the Disability After Dark feed, Cripology, I shine a bright light on our disabled past by looking at disabled history, something that I am fascinated by. On this episode, we look at the connection between the fairy and changeling folklore and disability. In this first episode, I explore the fact that certain disabilities were often understood as changelings or fairies. We talk about how parents often used folklore mythology to kill their disabled children, and I explore how the changeling myth has impacted disability as we understand it today.
