"Keywords for Disability Studies is an important primer featuring over 60 short essays on key concepts within an interdisciplinary field, destined for syllabi and bookshelves both within and outside of academia."--Cultural Studies
"Keywords for Disability Studiesdeftly demonstrates how disability may act as a conjuncture (like race) that opens cultural studies to new and crucial means of making sense of economic and cultural contexts, and deploying that knowledge politically. Its interdisciplinarity, broad-ranging perspectives, and deeply enacted connection to material politics ought to make this an exciting and illuminating read for those interested in cultural studies, disability, or both. In this intersection, there is the potential for the best kind of acculturation, a mutually transformative and progressive growth."--Cultural Studies
"Accessible and versatile, Keywords for Disability Studiescapaciously welcomes both newcomers and veterans of the field."--Symploke
"The entries are a brief but comprehensive take on some of the concepts found within disability studies. Coherent, direct, and informative, Keywords for Disability Studieswill undoubtedly generate questions and provide valuable resources for students and scholars alike in nearly any discipline for the foreseeable future."--Medical Humanities
"No mere inventory, Keywords for Disability Studiesis an invaluable conceptual mapping of the field. With entries that combine succinctness with clarity, the volume as a whole effectively synthesizes ongoing debates and evolving ideas to make this a most welcome addition to the field of disability studies."
