Disability Studies, Art & Education (DSAE)
The network advocates for first-person accounts of disability. Disability is understood as a cultural identity, an orientation to life that brings variation, diversity and richness to the disabled and non-disabled in culture, society, and to individuals. The aim of DSAE is to dignify disability with identity, subjectivity, and agency, rather than primarily as a biological condition. DSAE positions disability at the intersection of society and its discourses. This perspective is different from, for example, that of special education, which depends on external expert voices.
