Exploring Disability Identity and Disability Rights through Narratives
Finding a Voice of Their Own
Building on David M. Engel and Frank W. Munger’s groundbreaking work analyzing the narratives of people with physical and learning disabilities, this book is based around a series of qualitative interviews of young Canadian adults with physical disabilities. Addressing the theoretical underpinnings and current scholarship on disability identity the book considers the changes to the labour market in a globalized economy in order to understand the marginalization and oppression of people with disabilities. Through a thorough engagement with the narratives Ravi Malhotra and Morgan Rowe propose avenues for inclusive legal reform and ask if we need to reconsider the social model of disablement.
