    Selected Works
    New Yorkers with A Mental or Physical Disability
    by Neil Parmar
    This selection of work stems from my time as a graduate student within New York University's "portfolio" program, a two-semester honors track where articles focus on a subject area or theme. After creating a beat centered around New Yorkers with a mental or physical disability, I broadened my scope to look at deviations from the societal "norm."
