Summary
"In this book, Tanya Titchkosky challenges us to read and write disability differently than we ordinarily do in daily life. Through the examination of everyday texts about disability, this study explores how disability is put into text, narrated, and made present in readers' lives. Using interpretive social theory, Reading and Writing Disability Differently engages news media and policy texts that depict disability as a clear-cut problem in need of clear-cut solutions. These texts become opportunities to reveal dominant Western ways of constituting the meaning of people, and the meaning of problems, as they relate to contemporary understandings of our embodied selves."--Jacket
