9781786354785: Sociology Looking at Disability: What Did We Know and When Did We Know It? (Research in Social Science and Disability)

The purpose of this volume is to explore existing literature, with an eye towards encouraging scholars not to ask the same old questions but to use older writings as a basis for revolutionary and evolutionary thinking. What do the older writings tell us about what questions we should be asking, and what research we should be doing, today?

Review:

This work unites US contributors in sociology, social sciences, and disability studies (most affiliated with the American Sociological Association) to offer sociological perspectives on the conception of disability. The first part of the book surveys pioneering thinkers and works that reveal how the conception of disability was framed in the early years of the American Sociology Society. Several chapters are devoted to the work and ideas of Erving Goffman; other key figures discussed include Spencer Cahill, Saad Nagi, and Irving Kenneth Zola. Later chapters look for insight in theory and research that was not originally centered on the conceptualization of disability. Topics in these chapters include the sociology of deafness, studies on the sibling disability experience, and a review of research on the social experience of parenting disabled children. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution.--Annotation (c)2017 "(protoview.com) "

Book Description Emerald Publishing Limited, United Kingdom, 2016. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Current research in Sociology of Disability has a tendency to assume that very little written in this area until the last 20 years. However, this is not always the case. In part the lack of awareness of older writing occurs because of the ease of computerized searching for recent references or a sense that newer is better. It also reflects the assumption that Sociology as a field has ignored either disability as a social phenomenon or treated it solely as a medical phenomenon. While theorists and introductory textbooks have tended [and still tend] to ignore disability as a non-medical phenomenon and especially as a structured source of inequality, that does not mean that no attention was paid to disability in the earlier years. Rather, interest in disability from a sociological point of view exists as early as the late 1800s. The purpose of this volume is to explore that literature, with an eye towards encouraging current scholars not to ask the same old questions but to use the older writings as a basis for revolutionary as well as evolutionary thinking. What do the older writings tell us about what questions we should be asking, and what research we should be doing, today?. Bookseller Inventory # TNP9781786354785
