Résumé

Rethinking Nortnalcy introduces the growing field of disability studies to an undergraduate audience in a variety of disciplines and programs based in the social sciences, humanities, and health sciences. The authors articulate the depth and breadth of this newly emerging field of study and provide a vibrant foretaste of die kind of work disability studies scholars and activists do to provocatively question the power of normalcy.
Strongly, interdisciplinary, this volume draws upon many different social and cultural approaches to the study of disability, and essentially addresses disability as a social and political issue. The chapters in this book exemplify ways of questioning our collective relations to normalcy, as such relations affect the lives of both disabled and currently non-disabled people. Over sixty per cent of this book features the work of disability studies scholars located in Canada.
These contributors include Vera Chouinard, Tanis Doe, Parin Dossa, Diane Driedger, Nancy Hansen, Esther Ignani, Barbara Ladouceur, Claudia Malacrida,.CharlesMiller, James Overboe, Wendy Porch, Carla Rice, and Hilde Zitzelsberger.
