Shame, Disability, Disability Studies


For this issue, we sought as broad a range of scholarly perspectives as possible and we were not disappointed. The goal was to include a wide selection of international views and diverse disability experiences. The articles that follow examine the intersection of shame and disability through a variety of frameworks. Articles discussing the complexity of shame in East Asia and the Middle East share space with intimate first-person narratives grounded in ethnographic scholarship. Some articles are broad and theoretical, others offer a more practical perspective. Submissions focus on the effect of shame not only on the disabled individual, but on families, as well. Together, all showcase a rich diversity of ongoing scholarship in a field deserving our full attention.
