Crip Theory: Cultural Signs of Queerness and Disability (Cultural Front #9) (Paperback)
A bold and contemporary discourse of the intersection of disability studies and queer studies
Crip Theory attends to the contemporary cultures of disability and queerness that are coming out all over. Both disability studies and queer theory are centrally concerned with how bodies, pleasures, and identities are represented as "normal" or as abject, but Crip Theory is the first book to analyze thoroughly the ways in which these interdisciplinary fields inform each other.
