Imagining disability tomorrow


Goggin, G and Newell, CJ, Imagining disability tomorrow, Journal of Futures Studies (JFS), 10, (2) pp. 69-74. ISSN 1027-6084 (2005) [Refereed Article]


Drawing upon the insights of disability studies in terms of the present situation of people with disability we propose an imagining of disability as an integral and positive part of an Australasian university. This offers a challenge not just to the academy but also to future studies, in conceptualising disability in accordance with a human rights perspective acknowledging the structural nature of disadvantage and oppression.
