Please answer one of the following questions:
1) What does Bridgman’s fame suggest about the meaning of disability in mid-nineteenth century America?
2) How would you characterize Howe’s and Bridgman’s relationship? How would you describe the power dynamics? What does this suggest about institution life?
3) Alternatively, you can summarize in several sentences (or possibly a short paragraph each) your “muddiest point(s)” in Freeberg.
