Keywords for Disability Studies aims to broaden and define the conceptual framework of disability studies for readers and practitioners in the field and beyond. The volume engages some of the most pressing debates of our time, such as prenatal testing, euthanasia, accessibility in public transportation and the workplace, post-traumatic stress, and questions about the beginning and end of life. Each of the 60 essays in Keywords for Disability Studies focuses on a distinct critical concept, including &quote;ethics,&quote; &quote;medicalization,&quote; &quote;performance,&quote; &quote;reproduction,&quote; &quote;identity,&quote; and &quote;stigma,&quote; among others. Although the essays recognize that &quote;disability&quote; is often used as an umbrella term, the contributors to the volume avoid treating individual disabilities as keywords, and instead interrogate concepts that encompass different components of the social and bodily experience of disability. The essays approach disability as an embodied condition, a mutable historical phenomenon, and a social, political, and cultural identity. An invaluable resource for students and scholars alike, Keywords for Disability Studies brings the debates that have often remained internal to disability studies into a wider field of critical discourse, providing opportunities for fresh theoretical considerations of the field's core presuppositions through a variety of disciplinary perspectives.

  • About the Contributors
"No mere inventory, Keywords for Disability Studies is an invaluable conceptual mapping of the field. With entries that combine succinctness with clarity, the volume as a whole effectively synthesizes ongoing debates and evolving ideas to make this a most welcome addition to the field of disability studies."-Ato Quayson,author of Aesthetic Nervousness: Disability and the Crisis of Representation "Keywords for Disability Studies deftly demonstrates how disability may act as a conjuncture (like race) that opens cultural studies to new and crucial means of making sense of economic and cultural contexts, and deploying that knowledge politically. Its interdisciplinarity, broad-ranging perspectives, and deeply enacted connection to material politics ought to make this an exciting and illuminating read for those interested in cultural studies, disability, or both. In this intersection, there is the potential for the best kind of acculturation, a mutually transformative and progressive growth."-Cultural Studies "Accessible and versatile, Keywords for Disability Studies capaciously welcomes both newcomers and veterans of the field."-Symploke "Keywords for Disability Studies is an important primer featuring over 60 short essays on key concepts within an interdisciplinary field, destined for syllabi and bookshelves both within and outside of academia."-Cultural Studies "The entries... are a brief but comprehensive take on some of the concepts found within disability studies. Coherent, direct, and informative, Keywords for Disability Studies will undoubtedly generate questions and provide valuable resources for students and scholars alike in nearly any discipline for the foreseeable future."-Medical Humanities

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
