Beginning With Disability
While there are many introductions to disability and disability studies, most presume an advanced academic knowledge of a range of subjects. In Beginning with Disability, Lennard Davis has put together the first introductory reader for disability studies aimed at first- and second-year students in two- and four-year colleges. This volume of essays across disciplines including education, sociology, communications, psychology, social sciences, and humanities features accessible, readable, and relatively short articles that do not require specialized knowledge. Lennard Davis, along with a team of consulting editors, has put together feature a number of blogs, vlogs, and other videos to make the materials more direct and vivid to students. The text includes a section called "Subject to Debate" that features short pro and con pieces on controversial subjects that can be debated in class or act as prompts for assignments.
