9780253009340: Feminist, Queer, Crip

In Feminist, Queer, Crip Alison Kafer imagines a different future for disability and disabled bodies. Challenging the ways in which ideas about the future and time have been deployed in the service of compulsory able-bodiedness and able-mindedness, Kafer rejects the idea of disability as a pre-determined limit. She juxtaposes theories, movements, and identities such as environmental justice, reproductive justice, cyborg theory, transgender politics, and disability that are typically discussed in isolation and envisions new possibilities for crip futures and feminist/queer/crip alliances. This bold book goes against the grain of normalization and promotes a political framework for a more just world.

About the Author:

Alison Kafer is Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Feminist Studies at Southwestern University.

Review:

"Feminist Queer Crip is a unique addition to the feminist, disability literature that could easily serve as a supplemental text in a disability studies or queer studies undergraduate or graduate course.... it is certainly relevant to academicians, researchers and clinicians interested in the future of disability studies and provides an intriguing list of diverse examples with which to further explore this too often invisible topic." ―Sex Roles



"Kafer presents a bold and challenging perspective on potential futures for, and coalitions of, various politicized groups that are usually imagined separately―crips and queers, but also feminists, trans-gendered people, environmentalists, environmental justice activists, reproductive justice activists, 'restroom revolutionaries,' and people with MCS." ―Stacy Alaimo, University of Texas at Arlington



"Feminist, Queer, Crip is ambitious, doggedly interdisciplinary, and accessibly written. It retains political
sharpness while remaining determinedly optimistic about queer/crip futures." ―QED



"Provocatively poised at the intersections of queer, feminist, disability, environmental, and critical race scholarship and justice movements, this book presents a welcome and necessary meditation on the meaning and temporality of disability. Impressive in scope, sophistication, and imagination." ―Kim Q. Hall, Appalachian State University



"Kafer interrogates the ableist assumptions that pervade social and academic discourses and offers a critique of how these assumptions are put into practice in ways that directly affect the lives of people with disabilities. This is an original and comprehensive work that brings together disability studies, feminist theory, and queer theory." ―Licia Carlson, Providence College



"Feminist, Queer, Crip makes significant contributions to our understanding of how disability works in the world, contributions that no other academic book in the recently emergent field of interdisciplinary disability studies has done so thoroughly." ―Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies



"As it is written in accessible and clear language, Feminist, Queer, Crip has the potential to reach a wide range of audiences including undergraduate students. It will expand the thinking of minority studies scholars, including feminist theorists, philosophers, bioethicists, queer studies, critical race theorists, disability studies, environmental studies, and American studies scholars. The book will likely provoke transformative thinking for those who work to build coalitions among identity-based political movements as well as policymakers and medical, legal, and disability service professionals." ―PhiloSOPHIA
