Crip Theory

by Robert McRuer, Crip Theory Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Crip Theory book, Crip Theory attends to the contemporary cultures of disability and queerness that are coming out all over. Both disability studies and queer theory are centrally concerned with how bodies, pleasures, and identities are represented as “normal” or as abject, but Crip Theory is the first book to analyze thoroughly the ways in which these interdisciplinary fields inform each other. Drawing on feminist theory, African American and Latino/a cultural theories, composition studies, film and television studies, and theories of globalization and counter-globalization, Robert McRuer articulates the central concerns of crip theory and considers how such a critical perspective might impact cultural and historical inquiry in the humanities. Crip Theory puts forward readings of the Sharon Kowalski story, the performance art of Bob Flanagan, and the journals of Gary Fisher, as well as critiques of the domesticated queerness and disability marketed by the Millennium March, or Bravo TV’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. McRuer examines how dominant and marginal bodily and sexual identities are composed, and considers the vibrant ways that disability and queerness unsettle and re-write those identities in order to insist that another world is possible.

Disability Studies And The Environmental Humanities

by Sarah Jaquette Ray, Disability Studies And The Environmental Humanities Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Disability Studies And The Environmental Humanities book, Although scholars in the environmental humanities have been exploring the dichotomy between "wild" and "built" environments for several years, few have focused on the field of disability studies, a discipline that enlists the contingency between environments and bodies as a foundation of its scholarship. On the other hand, scholars in disability studies have demonstrated the ways in which the built environment privileges some bodies and minds over others, yet they have rarely examined the ways in which toxic environments engender chronic illness and disability or how environmental illnesses disrupt dominant paradigms for scrutinizing "disability." Designed as a reader for undergraduate and graduate courses, Disability Studies and the Environmental Humanities employs interdisciplinary perspectives to examine such issues as slow violence, imperialism, race, toxicity, eco-sickness, the body in environmental justice, ableism, and other topics. With a historical scope spanning the seventeenth century to the present, this collection not only presents the foundational documents informing this intersection of fields but also showcases the most current work, making it an indispensable reference.

Demur You Re Straightway Dangerous

by Jamie Utphall, Demur You Re Straightway Dangerous Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Demur You Re Straightway Dangerous book, "Despite Emily Dickinson's lifespan (1830-1886) matching the rise of the modern asylum and the scientific inception of eugenics, critics have not begun the cultural work of reading Dickinson's use of anatomical discourse through the lens of twentieth century crip theory. Applying crip theory to nineteenth century texts is important because it aids critics in recognizing the potential voices and perspectives that may have been silenced due to the pervasive ideological spread of compulsory able-bodiedness, which developed into its current form during the ninteenth century. Thus, my methodological framework for reading emerges from the intersections of new historicist cultural studies and twentieth century crip theory. In this project, I will uncover Dickinson's theorizing of disability to demonstrate her defense of neuro-diversity in the face of emergent medical models of insanity and normality. I argue Dickinson's poetry responds to the increasing cultural support for institutionalism, as well as the biological explanation for "eccentricities" included in her 1847 Mount Holyoke anatomy textbook. Although much of the discussion involving Dickinson and illness has worked to anachronistically diagnose the poet, I recover Dickinson's representations of disability, as 1) intuiting disability as socially constructed; 2) alluding to the phenomenological knowledge disability engenders via notions of crip time, chronic pain, and complex embodiment; and 3) embracing abnormality as a potential source of crip power for women during her time and beyond." -iii-iv.

Crip Times

by Robert McRuer, Crip Times Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Crip Times book, Contends that disability is a central but misunderstood element of global austerity politics. Broadly attentive to the political and economic shifts of the last several decades, Robert McRuer asks how disability activists, artists and social movements generate change and resist the dominant forms of globalization in an age of austerity, or “crip times.” Throughout Crip Times, McRuer considers how transnational queer disability theory and culture—activism, blogs, art, photography, literature, and performance—provide important and generative sites for both contesting austerity politics and imagining alternatives. The book engages various cultural flashpoints, including the spectacle surrounding the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games; the murder trial of South African Paralympian Oscar Pistorius; the photography of Brazilian artist Livia Radwanski which documents the gentrification of Colonia Roma in Mexico City; the defiance of Chilean students demanding a free and accessible education for all; the sculpture and performance of UK artist Liz Crow; and the problematic rhetoric of “aspiration” dependent upon both able-bodied and disabled figurations that emerged in Thatcher’s England. Crip Times asserts that disabled people themselves are demanding that disability be central to our understanding of political economy and uneven development and suggests that, in some locations, their demand for disability justice is starting to register. Ultimately, McRuer argues that a politics of austerity will always generate the compulsion to fortify borders and to separate a narrowly defined “us” in need of protection from “them.”

Feminist Queer Crip

by Alison Kafer, Feminist Queer Crip Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Feminist Queer Crip book, In Feminist, Queer, Crip Alison Kafer imagines a different future for disability and disabled bodies. Challenging the ways in which ideas about the future and time have been deployed in the service of compulsory able-bodiedness and able-mindedness, Kafer rejects the idea of disability as a pre-determined limit. She juxtaposes theories, movements, and identities such as environmental justice, reproductive justice, cyborg theory, transgender politics, and disability that are typically discussed in isolation and envisions new possibilities for crip futures and feminist/queer/crip alliances. This bold book goes against the grain of normalization and promotes a political framework for a more just world.

Rethinking College Student Development Theory Using Critical Frameworks

by Elisa S. Abes, Rethinking College Student Development Theory Using Critical Frameworks Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Rethinking College Student Development Theory Using Critical Frameworks book, A major new contribution to college student development theory, this book brings “third wave” theories to bear on this vitally important topic. The book has three sections: The first briefly introduces the third wave theories that have recently expanded the frame of the topic; the second uses those theories to focus on specific aspects of student development; and the third brings it all together with a few chapters that look at the implications for practice. The first section includes a chapter that provides an overview of the evolution of student development theories as well as chapters describing the critical and poststructural theories most relevant to the next iteration of student development theory. These theories include critical race theory, queer theory, feminist theories, intersectionality, decolonizing/indigenous theories, and crip theories. These chapters also include a discussion of how each theory is relevant to the central questions of student development theory. The second section provides critical interpretations of the primary constructs associated with student development theory. These constructs and their related ideas include resilience, dissonance, socially constructed identities, authenticity, agency, context, development (consistency/coherence/stability), and knowledge (sources of truth and belief systems). Each chapter begins with brief personal narratives on a particular construct; the chapter authors then re-envision the narrative’s highlighted construct using one or more critical theories. The third section will focus on implications for practice. Specifically, these chapters will consider possibilities for how student development constructs re-envisioned through critical perspectives can be utilized in practice. The primary audience for the book is faculty members who teach in graduate programs in higher education and student affairs and their students. The book will also be useful to practitioners seeking guidance in working effectively with students across the convergence of multiple aspects of identity and development.

National Bodies Embodied Nations

by Julie Avril Minich, National Bodies Embodied Nations Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download National Bodies Embodied Nations book, This dissertation examines the intersection of disability with race and gender in texts that seek to reconfigure or critique nationalism. Previous disability scholarship on the nation has viewed the nation as a concept predicated on the able body, coinciding with feminist and anti-racist critiques positing nationalism as a construct grounded in relations of domination. In contrast, this project asks what happens when cultural workers aligning themselves with liberatory social movements (such as feminism, the Chicana/o Movement, or struggles against globalization and in favor of democratization) reexamine nationalism and citizenship through representations of disability. It argues that although the reformulated nationalisms and transnational subjectivities presented in these texts do not always evade the problems associated with the idea of the nation--notably, its exclusionary constructions of citizenship--there are nonetheless important ethical, epistemological and political implications in the acts of claiming disability and of producing cultural texts that seek to construct communities based on that claim.
