Introduction: Personal and Professional Blindness

This is a blog about blindness. It is about my experiences of my own partial blindness but it is also about my current research into French representations of blindness.

I have spent this week working at the library of the Association Valentin Hauy, 5, rue Duroc, Paris 75007. The library has an incredible collection of French nineteenth-century novels about blindness.

it is the first ever picture of me and my cane)

As this project develops I will post my findings here. I will also post my experiences of being a partially blind person in a resolutely sighted - or ocularcentric - world.
