LENNARD DAVIS ENFORCING NORMALCY PDF

Add to Cart About Enforcing Normalcy In this highly original study of the cultural assumptions governing our conception of people with disabilities, Lennard J. Linking such notions to the concurrent emergence of discourses about the nation, Davis shows how the modern nation-state constructed its identity on the backs not only of colonized subjects, but of its physically disabled minority. In a fascinating chapter on contemporary cultural theory, Davis explores the pitfalls of privileging the figure of sight in conceptualizing the nature of textuality. And in a treatment of nudes and fragmented bodies in Western art, he shows how the ideal of physical wholeness is both demanded and denied in the classical aesthetics of representation.

Lennard J. Davis

The disabled population is a minority in any country or nation, yet the irony is that, anyone can become disabled at any time, and those who are fortunate enough to live to old age, will eventually become disabled themselves. The definition of disability is a fuzzy one, but in Enforcing Normalcy Davis construes of disability as bodies which differ from the norm. The specific form of bodily discrimination Davis is concerned with is ableism, which sees differences in bodies as negative. For this reason, he refrains from discussions on mental disabilities, because his focus is primarily physical. Within the social model, one would argue that if ramps or lifts were in place, if Braille and hearing loops are available, the disabled individual would not be disabled. Rather, the insistence on seeing disability as a process that is social shifts the focus on the individual, who is or is not disabled, onto the society, which is responsible for including the individual, regardless of abilities. Garland-Thomson , disability laws, media representation of disability, and personal contact with persons with disabilities.
