Book Description

9 July 2013
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.

Product Description

Review

"Provocatively poised at the intersections of queer, feminist, disability, environmental, and critical race scholarship and justice movements, this book presents a welcome and necessary meditation on the meaning and temporality of disability. Impressive in scope, sophistication, and imagination." - --Kim Q. Hall, Appalachian State University

"Kafer interrogates the ableist assumptions that pervade social and academic discourses and offers a critique of how these assumptions are put into practice in ways that directly affect the lives of people with disabilities. This is an original and comprehensive work that brings together disability studies, feminist theory, and queer theory." - --Licia Carlson, Providence College

"Kafer presents a bold and challenging perspective on potential futures for, and coalitions of, various politicized groups that are usually imagined separately crips and queers, but also feminists, trans-gendered people, environmentalists, environmental justice activists, reproductive justice activists, "restroom revolutionaries," and people with MCS." - --Stacy Alaimo, University of Texas at Arlington

By Kim - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's a book that I needed to get for a class and read a chapter and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it so I'm buying another copy for a friend with interest in the topic.
