Biographical Info

Using a novel approach to existing methods in cognitive anthropology, Mirjam Holleman developed an intra-culturally sensitive yet cross-culturally replicable and comparative way of measuring attitudes toward people with physical disabilities in order to assess the social integration of this group in the mental maps of non-disabled citizens and in society. Her field research in Poland provides a pilot study for these methodologies, which she hopes to apply on a larger and more comparative scale in other regions throughout Europe.
