Abstract

[Introduction]: There has been an assortment of ways to think about and designate disability and corporeal difference. We are familiar with the biomedical approach and more recent concept of the social model of disability which links the designation 'disability' to capitalist economy and social organisation. In the past decade, these approaches have been revised and developed into a relational-cultural model which sees disability and ableness in terms of an evolution; an interaction between the impairment and the environment, the person and others, the individual and their current and remembered selves (Goodley, 2013). Much of the research in Western countries has taken individualised modes instead of uncovering the processes of ableness that sustain the existence of disability as an operational difference (Campbell, 2011).
