CHAPTER 1 Introduction: Normality, Power, and Culture Lennard J. Davis We live in a world of norms. So much of writing about disability has focused on the disabled person as the object of study, just as the study of race has focused on the person of color
CHAPTER 1 Introduction: Normality, Power, and Culture Lennard J. So much of writing about disability has focused on the disabled person as the object of study, just as the study of race has focused on the person of color. But as with recent scholarship on race, which has turned its attention to whiteness and inter- sectionality, I would like to focus not so much on the construction of disability as on the construction of normalcy. I do this because the "problem" is not the person with disabili- ties; the problem is the way that normalcy is constructed to create the "problem" of the disabled person.
The Disability Studies Reader collects, for the first time, representative texts from the newly emerging field of disability studies. This volume represents a major advance in presenting the most important writings about disability with an emphasis on those writers working from a materialist and postmodernist perspective.
Drawing together experts in cultural studies, literary criticism, sociology, biology, the visual arts, pedagogy and post-colonial studies, the collection provides a comprehensive approach to the issue of disability. Contributors include Erving Goffman, Susan Sontag, Michelle Fine and Susan Wendell.
