«Las contradicciones de Cioran, lejos de invalidar su obra, más bien revelan l. a. fuerza y l. a. belleza de esta. »

Representations of disability and impairment are manufactured by charities, science and popular culture in ways that dis-locate disabled people (Snyder and Mitchell, 2006: 19). Key sites of analysis include novels, film, performance, art and drama. These cultural artefacts act as cultural vents. One strong analytical theme is disability as metaphor (Mitchell and Snyder, 1997; Snyder and Mitchell, 2001, 2006; Danforth, 2008). Far from being excluded by popular culture, the disabled person is ubiquitous, used as a metaphor for sinister, evil, ungodly, lacking, brave, fragmented and unviable.

Lack of explicit engagement with disability activism, professional practice and service delivery. Overemphasis on cultural construction rather than political marginalisation. Disability as relational (Nordic) Lack of distinction between impairment and disability might re-insert a medicalised view of the disabled body and mind. Over-emphasis on professional practice and service delivery and lack of engagement with disabled people’s organisations. Sources: Adapted from Davis, 1995, 1997, 2002, 2006a; Garland–Thomson, 1997; Mitchell and Snyder, 1997; Olkin, 2001, 2002, 2009; Tøssebro, 2002, 2004; Traustadóttir, 2004a, 2006a; and Snyder and Mitchell, 2006 In and Outside Anglo-Nordic-North-American orthodoxies As disability studies mature the ensuing analyses become increasingly eclectic.

Higher levels of depression are found in disabled women than men (Olkin, 2008), women are more likely to remain in abusive (often heterosexual) relationships due to a reliance on partners for personal assistance and financial support, combined with concerns about losing custody of their children (to their non-disabled partners) (see also Olkin, 2003). Disabled feminisms re-examine feminist politics of reproductive technologies and ethics of care (Garland-Thomson, 2002). As Morris (1996) demonstrates, non-disabled feminist calls for the ‘right to choose’ the termination of disabled foetuses and their concerns with the subjugation of women through ‘unpaid care practices’ (often, of disabled people) are complicated by a disability studies agenda.
