Contributed papers presented at a conference on gender, disability, and society jointly organized by Centre for Women's Development Studies and Women's Studies and Development Centre, University of Delhi on August 21-22, 2008.
Since the 1970s, the international disability rights movement, the United Nations and national governments across the world have attempted to ameliorate the status of the disabled population through a range of legislative and policy measures primarily in the areas of health, education, employment, accessible environments and social security. While the discourse in the disability sector in India has shifted from charity and welfare to human rights and entitlements, disability studies as an interdisciplinary academic terrain that focuses on the contributions, experiences, history and culture of persons with disabilities has not yet taken root.
This volume collates some of the most recent pioneering work on disability studies from across the country. The essays presented here engage with the concept of disability from a variety of disciplinary positions, sociocultural contexts and subjective experiences within the overarching framework of the Indian reality. The contributors including some with disabilities themselves provide a well-rounded perspective, in shifting focus from disability as a medical condition only needing clinical intervention to giving it due social and academic legitimacy.
This book outlines key issues that would be germane to any disability studies endeavour in India and South Asia, and will appeal to academics, activists, institutions, laypersons and professionals involved in social welfare, sociology, disability studies, women s studies, psychiatry, rehabilitation, and social and preventive medicine.
