Description Mixing rigorous social theory with concrete analysis, Reading and Writing Disability Differently unpacks the marginality of disabled people by addressing how the meaning of our bodily existence is configured in everyday literate society. Tanya Titchkosky begins by illustrating how news media and policy texts reveal dominant Western ways of constituting the meaning of people, and the meaning of problems, as they relate to our understandings of the embodied self.
Her goal is to configure disability as something more than a problem, and beyond simply a positive or a negative, and to treat texts on disability as potential sites to examine neo-liberal culture. Titchkosky holds that through an exploration of the potential behind limited representations of disability, we can relate to disability as a meaningful form of resistance to the restricted normative order of contemporary embodiment.

In this collection, we encounter, again and again, such decisions made obvious; decisions, no longer taken for granted. Decisions to see are situated in the midst of the difficult task of figuring out how we came to see what we did as we did.
Artists and theorists of visual autobiography provoke us to encounter our gaze as it is organized by values and assumptions of the various ways Western culture desires us to see. This collection contains many lessons on how to situate the act of seeing in its social complexity. Such an education seems all the more necessary when we consider how some gazes organize what lives will been seen to matter and what lives not. Police and others easily see something else when they see Black people killed by police; sometimes they even see hulks and monsters, but still do not see unjustified levels of violence and thus cannot see an unwarranted death.
Reading and Writing Disability Differently
It does not recommend that vision simply should be utilized differently. Nor does Embodied Politics in Visual Autobiography let us rest easy in the act of the visual without encountering some of that which lies behind our desire to see, namely, our decisions and their inter-subjective organization. Instead, every chapter demonstrates that eyes do not just see and images do not just show.
Such double vision is indispensible.
