The Politics and Practice of Interventions
In recent years, interventions directed at disabled people have been the subject of debate, controversy and resistance. This course explores these tensions by tracing various approaches to creating change in the lives of disabled people. Students will use sociological analysis, theories of disability/difference, autobiographical knowledge and consultation to critique examples of contemporary interventions and to explore potentially more positive alternatives.
