Disability as a Fluid State
Sharon N. Barnartt
Emerald Group Publishing, 2010 - Social Science - 312 pages
This volume revolutionarily reconceptualizes disability not as a static but a dynamic phenomenon which is related to social, cultural, psychological and historical context. Papers by leading disability scholars in the areas of sociology, anthropology, and history look at the fluidity of disability and rethink how we are measuring disability.
