Summary
This book brings together formally disparate literatures and debates on disability and technology in a way that captures the complex interplay between the two. Drawing on disability studies, technology studies and clinical studies, the book argues that interdisciplinary insights together provide a more nuanced and less stylized picture of the benefits and barriers in disability and technology. Drawing on a breadth of empirical studies from across the globe, a picture emerges of the complex and multi-directional interplay of technology and disability. Technology is neither inherently enabling or disabling but fundamentally shaped by the social dynamics that shape their design, use and impact. Alan Roulstone is Professor of Disability Studies at the University Leeds, UK. He is author of twelve books and over sixty journal articles and book chapters. His interests include disability, technology, policy, exclusion, inclusion, and the politics of hate crime. Alan has completed a range of internationally recognised research and with policy, practice, and activist constituencies.--
