Monika Baár: De-pathologizing Disability: Politics, Culture and Identity

Abstract

Disability is a rather new field of research for the humanities. It raises important questions in relation
to the term itself but also to its usage in political and cultural contexts. This review essay sheds light
on various branches of research in social sciences and history. It focusses on the history of state and
disability as well as the lack of research on representation and self-representation of disability and
disabled people. In doing so, the article pleads for a wider approach to ethical questions surrounding
disability.
