We hope to give a follow-up to this seminar during the Invictus Games, which will take place in the The Hague next year. Although this multi-sport event was only initiated in 2014, the organization of sport events for disabled veterans has of course a much longer history. Therefore the Rethinking Disability website is available for public history blogs about different aspects of sport, disability and war – also covering more contemporary issues. If you are interested in contributing to the blog series, please contact rethinkingdisability@hum.leidenuniv.nl
