Culture Theory Disability : Encounters Between Disability Studies and Cultural Studies
What does Disability Studies gain by opening itself up to the larger field of Cultural Studies, and which theoretical frameworks of contemporary cultural criticism can it employ to rethink disability? At the same time, what can Cultural Studies gain by incorporating disability more fully as an object of inquiry and as a framework for critical analysis? This collection of essays enriches the thriving discourse of Cultural Disability Studies. In order to contour the various »contact zones« between the two fields, the volume works transdisciplinarily, drawing on fields such as sociology, literary studies, art history and philosophy.
