about this item

Markoti&’c& presents readers with a comprehensive examination of the depiction of disability in a wide array of literary, film, and other artistic mediums over time, arguing that these depictions reinforce an ideology of the able, or ableist ideology, that can only classify human bodies as either normal or abnormal. The book covers disability promotion and abjection in The Saddest Music in the World, the Icarus myth and mythological depictions of disability, and many other related subjects. The author is a faculty member of the University of Windsor, Ontario in Canada. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
