Culture as Disability.
McDermott, Ray; Varenne, Herve
Anthropology & Education Quarterly, v26 n3 p324-348 Sep 1995
An ethnographic analysis of the cultural constructs of various disabilities, such as deafness, learning disabilities, and illiteracy, reveals identifications attuned to the workings of institutions serving political and economic ends through formal educational means rather than identifications of truly disabled persons.
