Book description

<P>In the last 30 years, a distinctive intersection between disability studies ? including disability rights advocacy, disability rights activism, and disability law ? and disability arts, culture, and media studies has developed. The two fields have worked in tandem to offer critique of representations of disability in dominant cultural systems, institutions, discourses, and architecture, and develop provocative new representations of what it means to be disabled. </P> <P>Divided into 5 sections: </P> <P></P> <UL> <P> <LI>Disability, Identity, and Representation</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>Inclusion, Wellbeing, and Whole-of-life Experience</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>Access, Artistry, and Audiences</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>Practices, Politics and the Public Sphere</LI> <P></P> <P> <LI>Activism, Adaptation, and Alternative Futures</LI> <P></P></UL> <P></P> <P>this handbook brings disability arts, disability culture, and disability media studies ? traditionally treated separately in publications in the field to date ? together for the first time. </P> <P>It provides scholars, graduate students, upper level undergraduate students, and others interested in the disability rights agenda with a broad-based, practical and accessible introduction to key debates in the field of disability art, culture, and media studies. An internationally recognised selection of authors from around the world come together to articulate the theories, issues, interests, and practices that have come to define the field. Most critically, this book includes commentaries that forecast the pressing present and future concerns for the field as scholars, advocates, activists, and artists work to make a more inclusive society a reality. </P> <P></P>
