Sample text

Viewing disability as difference allows for positive, or at least neutral, attitudes toward disability to be adopted. Since in our culture disability is largely understood as deviance from the norm, it can be difficult for disabled people to advocate for their experiences as different but not necessarily negative. The Deaf community is an apt example of this: many Deaf people do not consider themselves disabled, but rather argue that they are distinguished not primarily by an inability to hear, but by their use of a language (American Sign Language) that allows them to communicate without needing to hear.

With this accommodation, what formerly disabled him—the fact that the environment is designed for people who can see— no longer does. Similarly, Georgina Kleege opens her 1999 collection of essays, Sight Unseen, with the eye-catching claim, “Writing this book made me blind” (p. 1). ” John Hockenberry also explores the socially constructed nature of his own disability in “Fear of Bees,” a frequently reprinted essay from his 1995 book Moving Violations. In answer to “people want to know what I want to be called,” Hockenberry opens this essay with a nearly threepage rant about the “names” for his life and “condition” that are often contradictory.

While there is a wealth of current work taking place on disability issues in a global context, this volume focuses mostly on an American context. From that American context, in 1966, sociologists James L. Berger and Thomas Luckmann published The Social Construction of Reality, which argues that all social patterns are based on concepts people develop over a long history of group interactions and the roles members of a society imagine for themselves and for others. Berger and Luckmann’s explanation of the relative nature of both knowledge and social conventions provided a foundation for civil rights advocates.
