9780335202225: Disability Discourse (Disability, Human Rights, and Society)

Drawing upon personal narratives, rhetoric, material discourse, discourse analysis, cultural representation, ethnography and contextual studies, this text seeks to emphasize the multi-dimensional and multi-functional nature of disability language in an attempt to further inform our understanding of disability and to locate disability more firmly within contemporary mainstream social and cultural theory. It considers such questions as: why has the discursive turn been sidelined in the development of a social theory of disability, and what has been the result of this?; and how might a social theory of disability which fully incorporates the multidimensional and multifunctional role be described?

About the Author:

The late Mairian Corker was a freelance researcher, writer and trainer on all issues affecting the lives of deaf and disabled people. She published widely in the areas of deaf education, psychology and support services and was Editor of Deafness and an honorary editor of Disability and Society. Mairian, who was deaf herself, was a trained counsellor who used a flexible, integrated approach. She was also a seminar leader on the Counselling Skills and Attitudes Course for Deaf Trainees at Westminster Pastoral Foundation in London.

Review:

"Most new books recycle existing thought, but occasionallya book comes along which offers a new set of ideas and a fresh perspective. This international compilation does both: it provides the familiar alongside the normal." - The Times Educational Supplement "Disability and the Dilemmas of Education and Justice pulls no punches. It is a relentless critique of our current special educational needs system and of those who work in it." - Special Children "A thought provoking and interesting book, that raises many valuable issues. Certainly worth a read for all involved in special education." - Education Review "I have for over 30 years been concerned with the education of students with a variety of disabilities and of various degrees of disability, andbelieved that I had acquired a knowledge of most of theproblems experienced by disabled people. However, after reading the essays containedin this book my eyes have been opened to a myriad of other problems experienced by them, and for me the essays have opened up new avenues of thought on education as it affects disabled students.The writing of this book has long been overdue." - EducationToday "...a must for students...It brings special needs into the wide cultural arena which seems to me to be where it must be located as we moveinto the twenty-first century." - British Educational Research Journal "This book is stronglyrecommendedto anyone involved in special education." - Educational Research "...a book that will inform and enlighten even the most veteran and knowledgeable members of the special education profession...At the same time, it is written in sufficient detail and with enough background information to allow its ideas to be accessible to newcomers or lay readers. Its authors'perspectives are fresh, informed by multiple sources and disciplines." - Qualitative Studies in Education

Book Description OPEN UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 1999. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. * Why has the discursive turn been sidelined in the development of a social theory of disability, and what has been the result of this?* How might a social theory of disability which fully incorporates the multidimensional and multifunctional role of language be described?* What would such a theory contribute to a more inclusive understanding of discourse and culture ?The idea that disability is socially created has, in recent years, been increasingly legitimated within social, cultural and policy frameworks and structures which view disability as a form of social oppression. However, the materialist emphasis of these frameworks and structures has sidelined the growing recognition of the central role of language in social phenomena which has accompanied the linguistic turn in social theory. As a result, little attention has been paid within Disability Studies to analysing the role of language in struggle and transformation in power relations and the engineering of social and cultural change. Drawing upon personal narratives, rhetoric, material discourse, discourse analysis, cultural representation, ethnography and contextual studies, international contributors seek to emphasize the multi-dimensional and multi-functional nature of disability language in an attempt to further inform our understanding of disability and to locate disability more firmly within contemporary mainstream social and cultural theory.
