Professor Dan Goodley
More about Dan
Dan is interested in theorising and challenging the conditions of disablism (the social, political, cultural and psycho-emotional exclusion of people with physical, sensory and/or cognitive impairments) and ableism (the contemporary ideals on which the able, autonomous, productive citizen is based).
He is interested in engaging with poststructuralist, postconventionalist, social psychoanalytic and narrative accounts of exclusion and political resistance.
Dan hopes to engage with the expertise of non-normative children and their families to expose different ways of ‘being human’. This has extended his interest in critical disability studies to include ideas from queer theory, critical race, post-colonialism and feminism.
