    9. The Disability Archive UK
    There is little doubt that disability studies should be rooted in the work of disabled people and their organisations.
    Welcome to the Disability Archive UK. Hosted by the Centre for Disability Studies
    University of Leeds
    ABOUT THE ARCHIVE There is little doubt that Disability Studies should be rooted in the work of disabled people and their organisations. An understanding of history is vital if we are to engage with the present and influence the future. But all too often we have little or no knowledge of the concerns and insights of those who went before. The aim of the Disability Archive UK is to provide disabled people, students and scholars with an interest in this and related fields, access to the writings of those disability activists, writers and allies whose work may no longer be easily accessible in the public domain. It is hoped that the documents available via the Archive will help to inform current and future debates on disability and related issues. The Archive will be periodically expanded to include other material as and when it becomes available. Files and articles may be freely downloaded and reproduced in other formats for those without access to a computer. However, files may NOT be downloaded and reproduced in any format for commercial purposes without the express permission of the author or authors concerned. Furthermore, files may not be transferred to any website that charges a fee for user access. Finally, the entire Disability Archive UK must not be linked to other websites as a mirror file for ease of local use without prior consultation with the archive administrator.

    16. Barbara Robertson's Disability Research Resources
    Online resources for disability research from a socio-political perspective, and the emerging interdisciplinary field of disability studies.




    ... Text only version
    This site was last updated on September 28, 1999 This site is my effort to organize on-line resources for (a) disability research from a socio-political perspective, and (b) the emerging interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies. This is a field that is still early in its development, and is subject to different definitions regarding its scope, contributing disciplines, and methods. There is also considerable discussion around the appropriate roles for nondisabled people as disability researchers and advocates. My goal in developing this site is to organize materials that disability researchers can use in thinking about these questions, or simply to support their own work.
    About the pages linked to this site: • The Universal Access symbol links to resources on web accessibility for people with disabilities. • In lieu of my own General Disability Resources page, I'm now referring people to Society for Disability Studies links page , as it has nearly all of the resources I had on mine no surprise, as I maintain SDS' website! SDS' links page has links to disability studies academic programs, social and/or activist disability resources, disability web site indices, and more. It has most of the resources of interest to visitors to this page. I encourage all visitors to this site to check out the Society for Disability Studies website.

    This information package was prepared with support from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR), awarded to the Center on Human Policy, Division of Special Education and Rehabilitation, School of Education, Syracuse University under Cooperative Agreement No. H133D50037. The opinions expressed herein are those solely of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the position or the policy of the U.S. Department of Education and no official endorsement should be inferred.
    Disability studies seek to examine the social, economic, and political forces that for years have served to marginalize and oppress people with disabilities. The field has emerged over the last several years, drawing on theories and perspectives from sociology, social science, women's studies, cultural studies, and education. It often focuses on the idea that people with disabilities are a minority group who has been discriminated against. In this sense, the study of disability is similar to the study of race, class, and gender inequalities. In addition, disability studies provide the intellectual and methodological tools needed to create disability research and policy. The theories and philosophies of disability studies can then be applied to real issues in the law, in community inclusion, and in public policy.
