Disability and Social Theory: New Developments and Directions

Dan Goodley (Editor), Bill Hughes (Editor), Lennard Davis (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology/Edited Book


This interdisciplinary collection examines disability from a theoretical perspective. Each chapter challenges dominant biological, individualistic and psychological views of disability, drawing on one or two theories (and theorists) to advance a sustained analysis of disability, impairment and society. Through its detailed analysis of the conditions of disablism, the text also argues for the celebration of more affirmative views of impairment, disability and disabled identities.
