Bio: After two decades at the University of California, Davis, Catherine Kudlick became Professor of History and Director of the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University in 2012. She directed the public history exhibit “Patient No More: People with Disabilities Securing Civil Rights” and co-hosts Superfest International Disability Film Festival. Her current work blends research and advocacy in the service of public history where the major goal is pursuing the Longmore Institute’s mission to convince the world that society is better because of disabled people. She has published a number of academic books and articles in disability history, including *Reflections: the Life and Writings of a Young Blind Woman in Postrevolutionary France* and "Disability History: Why We Need Another Other" in the *American Historical Review.* She oversaw completion of Paul Longmore’s posthumously published book, *Telethons: Spectacle, Disability, and the Business of Charity* and co-edited *The Oxford Handbook of Disability History* with Michael Rembis and Kim Nielsen.
