Summary
  • "This book explores the possibilities and limitations re-theorizing disability using historical materialism in the interdisciplinary contexts of social theory, cultural studies, social and education policy, feminist ethics, and theories of citizenship"--
  • "This book deploys a relational analysis to theorize disability at the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality within both U.S. and global contexts. Critically engaging post humanist theories of difference this book explores the implications of re-theorizing disability as a materialist construct in the context of global citizenship. The book engages a diversity of theories and topics that include transnational feminist theory, critical race feminism, post humanist and marxist theories of embodiment, special education as the post colonial ghetto, sex educational policies, citizenship and cognitive disability, war and disability, and the dialectical tensions within an ethics of care"--
