"Disability is not always central to claims about diversity and inclusion in higher education, but should be. This collection reveals the pervasiveness of disability issues and considerations within many higher education populations and settings, from classrooms to physical environments to policy impacts on students, faculty, administrators, and staff. While disclosing one's disability and identifying shared experiences can engender moments of solidarity, the situation is always complicated by the intersecting factors of race and ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class. The contributors to Negotiating Disability use disclosure as a statrting point to explore how disability is named, identified, claimed, and negotiated within higher education settings. The essays reflect a broad set of scholarly approaches (e.g., interviews with disabled students and analyses of statistical data) and research interests (e.g., implications for future policy and change, representations of disability in popular culture, literature, and media.)". --Cover.
