Rethinking Disability : Bodies, Senses, and Things Hardback
Part of the Routledge Studies in Science, Technology and Society series
This text is a critical and empirically-based introduction to disability studies.
It offers a comprehensive, book-length analysis of disability through the lens of Science and Technology Studies (STS), and presents a practice-oriented discussion of how bodies, senses and things are linked in everyday life and configure "enabling" and "disabling" scenarios.
Relevant to a broad spectrum of medical practitioners and practicing social service workers, the book will also be essential reading in the fields of disability studies, sociology of the body/senses, medical sociology and STS.
