Disability Studies in India: Global Discourses, Local Realities.

The inclusion of disability as a subject matter of law and policy is a relatively recent development in India.

Visually challenged participants at a workshop framed issues almost exclusively through the lens of their personal experiences and understanding of visual disability, while the articulations of the non-disabled participants revealed a more mixed perspective combining their understanding and assumptions about disability and gender in general.

Since the 1970s, the international disability rights movement, the United Nations and national governments across the world have attempted to ameliorate the status of the disabled population through a range of legislative and policy measures primarily in the areas of health, education, employment, accessible environments and social security. While the discourse in the disability sector in India has shifted from charity and welfare to human rights and entitlements, disability studies ― as an interdisciplinary academic terrain that focuses on the contributions, experiences, history and culture of persons with disabilities ― has not yet taken root.

This volume collates some of the most recent pioneering work on disability studies from across the country. The essays presented here engage with the concept of disability from a variety of disciplinary positions, sociocultural contexts and subjective experiences within the overarching framework of the Indian reality. The contributors ― including some with disabilities themselves ― provide a well-rounded perspective, in shifting focus from disability as a medical condition only needing clinical intervention to giving it due social and academic legitimacy.

This book outlines key issues that would be germane to any disability studies endeavour in India and South Asia, and will appeal to academics, activists, institutions, laypersons and professionals involved in social welfare, sociology, disability studies, women’s studies, psychiatry, rehabilitation, and social and preventive medicine.
