Sociology of Impairment book

I am writing a book which aims to provide a social model of impairment (as distinct from a social  model of disability). This will be published by Routledge.

Edited Disability Hate Speech Book

I am co-editing a book called "Disability Hate Speech"  alongside Terje Olsen,  John E. Eriksen  and Janikke S. Vedeler (all from Nordland Research Institute, Norway).  We have jointly written the Introduction, and I am also co-authoring a chapter on an Australian campaign against the R-word with Julia Hawkins.
