Domestic space and disability in nineteenth-century Melbourne, Australia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper contributes to the historical-geographical understanding of disability in Australia by exploring the spatial context of physical impairment in 19th century Melbourne. The paper seeks to locate disabled people by showing where and how they lived, and to illustrate the socio-spatial relations that shaped their lives. Although the social geographical focus of the paper is on the historical domestic environment, the analysis also considers other key social spaces. The paper traces some of important socio-spatial relationships that connected domestic space to other key sites in disabled people's everyday lives
