Publisher's Synopsis

Dan Goodley draws on two decades of research and writing and weaves personal stories, scholarly literature, social media and other cultural narratives together with concepts from the interdisciplinary field of disability studies. His argument is simple: disability invites great insight into the wider project of understanding the human condition. The study of disability is of great importance in its own right (which it is) but because disability has much to offer us when we contemplate what it means to be human in the 21st Century. Chapters address questions such as 'who's allowed to be human?'; 'are human beings dependent?'; and 'what does it mean to be human in the digital age?' and respond to these questions in ways that get us thinking about how we might productively engage with, listen to and understand one another.

Dan Goodley is Professor of Disability Studies in the School of Education and co-director of iHuman: the interdisciplinary research institute for the study of the human at the University of Sheffield. Dan has written numerous books on disability studies including Dis/ability Studies (2014: Routledge) and Disability Studies (2016, second edition: Sage). He is a Nottingham Forest FC and Sleaford Mods fanatic.
