Book Description

This book advances qualitative methods and methodological discussions from the ways in which “disabled people” are viewed primarily as research subjects without input of their own, to a place where disability embodiment and the lived experience of disability are potential sources of method and methodological advancement. As such, this book centers disabilityand, in so doing, examines methodological challenges related to normative and ableist assumptions in doing qualitative research.
