Perceptions of Our Childhood: Confronting Social Constructions of Care, Disability, and Childhood
The Sociology of Childhood and Youth Studies in Canada is finally out!
This is a great edited collection exploring Canadian scholarship about young lives from a sociological perspective.
I'm honoured to have a chapter in this collection examining our own experiences around disability and sibling relationships titled Perceptions of Our Childhood: Confronting Social Constructions of Care, Disability, and Childhood. Most importantly, I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to expand on aspects of my doctoral research that push back against negative notions about disability and childhood.
