  • “I’m too old to think five years ahead”. Parent carers of adult
           children with intellectual disabilities in Sweden

      In Sweden, most adult people with intellectual disabilities live in group homes. Independent living and independence are highly valued in Swedish politics. Yet there are also parents who live with their adult ‘children’ with intellectual disabilities. This article analyses eight parents’ stories about living with their adult children with intellectual disabilities. They discuss their daily lives and future thoughts concerning their children's living situation. The analysis is conducted from a perspective in which age is seen as a social practice and power structure. The parents in this study violate several norms through their choices. Their daily lives continue to be characterized by the adult children's needs and activities. The parents are aging and the adult children get older, but household chores and responsibilities continue to be distributed in the same way. There is risk that the co-living of parents and adult children will entrench an age structure in which parents are ascribed “eternal” adulthood, never transitioning into old age, while the child remains in “eternal” adolescence.

  • Rehabilitation in momentum of Norwegian coordination reform: From
           practices of discipline to disciplinary practices

      The way rehabilitation is given meaning and practiced relies on contesting assumptions, affecting the conception of who will benefit from rehabilitation and the way professionals define their relationship with patients. This article applies a critical discourse analysis of interviews with rehabilitation professionals, investigating the way they talk about rehabilitation, and the ways their language use produces utterances, concepts, and affects their practices. The context of the analysis is time of change imposed by Norwegian health reform policies targeted towards efficiency and decreased public health cost. A meta-discourse of goals is identified, in which four further discourses are singled out; rehabilitation as catalyst for a meaningful living; rehabilitation as professional performance; rehabilitation as constraint factor, and rehabilitation as a normative stimulus for independence. The article concludes that rehabilitation professionals include policy-informed rationing in clinical reasoning processes. The consequence is that institutional rehabilitation practices depart from patient-centered, socially invented schemes of care. Rehabilitation professionals act as powerful agents on behalf of the authorities, approaching the disabled and chronically ill in ways to make them independent and self-managing with less involvement of specialized rehabilitation services.

      Disability is increasingly salient as a word and increasingly heterogeneous as a category. Multiple interest groups and professions define disability in different ways, making it impossible to achieve a unitary theoretical definition or singular model-explanation of disability as a phenomenon. It is in the interest both of disability scholars and disabled people to acknowledge the multiple understandings of disability, and to appropriate ways of thinking and talking about disability that are often seen as antithetical to a progressive understanding of disability. This particularly applies to medical language, which may be used to deepen our understanding of disability without the traditionally attendant problem of medicalization. Such a project requires a deeper engagement with the particularities of medical language, but also with chronic illness, which is sometimes dichotomized from impairment on spurious grounds. Disability studies should acknowledge the utility of medical language as a tool for people with chronic illnesses as well as impairments to conceptualize their embodied experience, and strive for ways to situate medical language within a sociopolitically progressive understanding of chronic illness, impairment, and disability.

  • Medical selection upon hiring and the applicant's right to lie about his
           health status: A comparative study of French and Quebec Law

      As democracies respecting human rights, France and Quebec both prohibit discrimination in hiring on the grounds of disabilities. On the other hand, businesses wish to select the most effective job applicants possible in light of the physical and psychological demands of the job. In order to avoid being eliminated from the selection process, applicants may be tempted to hide or even lie about their health status. Consequently, the law has been put to the test, seeking a delicate balance regarding the consequences of applicants’ silence or false declarations concerning their health status. The legal consequences of this situation have been viewed differently in France and Quebec. In Quebec, contractual synallagmatic obligations appear to take precedence over rules limiting the collection of discriminatory information, allowing for a selection that is nevertheless prohibited by the laws protecting human rights. By contrast, in France, the employer has no right to intrude in matters of worker health and the withholding of information or even lies on the part of applicants can only rarely be used to justify a dismissal. This interpretation poses great challenges in view of the “safety obligation of result” that is imposed on the French employer. Through a comparative analysis of French and Quebec positive law, this paper explores the limits of the employer's ability to investigate an applicant's health during the hiring process. It then turns to the question of the right to lie as a way to avoid being discriminated against on the basis of disability and the consequences of this right on the employment relationship.

  • Les coûts du handicap au Québec : que font les ménages et comment les

      Le présent article présente les résultats d’une enquête sur les coûts du handicap au Québec et aborde certains enjeux de politique sociale. Il tient compte d’une diversité d’habitudes de vie, de types d’incapacités et de ménages. Trois domaines de dépenses sont souvent rapportés : l’habitation, les soins de santé et les déplacements. Des facteurs de variation entre les ménages ressortent aussi fortement, comme la classe de revenus, la composition de la famille et le type d’incapacité. Sur le plan conceptuel, l’article met en relief la distinction entre les coûts supplémentaires généraux et spécifiques, révélatrice de la très grande gamme de coûts du handicap et des effets du dispositif étatique de compensation et de soutien des personnes. This article presents the findings of a research about disability costs conducted in the province of Quebec, Canada. It also addresses issues related to social policy. Our findings encompass a wide variety of life activities experienced by different categories of disabled people and their families. Using this qualitative framework, we surveyed over two hundreds types of expenses, but three domains came out strongly: housing, health or personal care, and transportation. Disability costs vary according to types of disability but also relate to socioeconomic status and family configuration. Disability costs, general or specific, are good indicators of special needs and may be useful to design social programs, but they underestimate “deprivation” amongst the poorest. Overall, they underline the limitations of our current social security system and appeals for a new regime of solidarity in order to attain equality.

  • Et le monstre rêva qu’il était un homme

      Author(s): Simone Korff-Sausse
      Le handicap évoque toujours une image de monstruosité. L’auteur se propose d’étudier comment les représentations du monstrueux et du handicap ont évolué. Le monstrueux, à l’ère moderne, se situe dans une relation de réciprocité qui fonde une autre manière de concevoir l’altérité. Une personne monstrueuse est un miroir dans lequel l’homme contemporain pourra reconnaître un semblable. L’auteur fait l’hypothèse qu’actuellement le monstrueux n’exclut pas la subjectivité. Cette hypothèse sera étayée par plusieurs exemples, issus de la littérature (Kenzaburô Oe, Richard III), la mythologie (Le Minotaure) et la clinique (un enfant de quatre ans atteint d’une maladie génétique qui provoque une dysmorphie faciale). La définition du monstre est d’être sans semblable et sans descendance. Dans le domaine du handicap, cela correspond à trois représentations inconscientes collectives : une filiation fautive, une transmission dangereuse et une procréation interdite. La monstruosité soulève la question de l’intériorité et de l’apparence : le monstre physique est-il un monstre moral ? Le monstre peut-il prendre conscience de sa monstruosité ? Et si oui, selon quels processus psychiques, en rapport avec le regard de l’autre. Disability always evokes an image of monstrosity. The author proposes to study how representations of the monstrous and of disability have evolved. The monstrous, in the modern era, is situated in a relationship of reciprocity that founds another way to conceive of alterity. A monstrous person is a mirror in which contemporary man might be able to recognize a fellow creature. The author makes the hypothesis that the monstrous does not preclude subjectivity. This hypothesis is backed up with several examples, from literature (Kenzaburô Oe, Richard III), mythology (the Minotaur) and clinical cases (a four-year-old child suffering from a genetic disease causing facial deformation). The definition of the monster is to be without fellow creatures and without descendants. In terms of disability, this corresponds to three unconscious collective representations: faulty filiation, dangerous transmission and forbidden procreation. Monstrosity raises the question of interiority and appearance: is the physical monster a moral monster? Can the monster become conscious of his monstrosity? And if so, through what psychic processes, in relation with the gaze of the other?

  • Malformation du visage et défiguration : prise en charge psychologique
           dans la clinique de la monstruosité faciale
    • Authors: Caroline Demeule
      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 February 2017

      Le visage représente symboliquement le support de l’identité. Dans un service de chirurgie maxillo-faciale, les visages malformés et défigurés constituent une clinique de la monstruosité faciale. Fréquemment verbalisée, la référence à la monstruosité apparaît comme une évidence et partage avec la difformité faciale ses caractéristiques principales : archaïsme, démesure, paradoxe et hybridité. La catégorie du monstrueux éclaire les processus psychiques pris au cœur de la difformité faciale, où la subjectivité se retrouve souvent mise à mal. Pour s’approprier ce visage monstrueux, les patients peuvent mettre en œuvre leurs capacités créatrices à travers des théories somatiques infantiles où émergent des processus archaïques accueillis dans l’écoute clinique. Dans cette clinique si particulière, la dimension spéculaire est prégnante, et le psychologue doit alors repenser sa posture clinique : si la rencontre avec le sujet constitue l’occasion d’une mise en mots du visage monstrueux, le clinicien remplit aussi un rôle de miroir symbolique. Des cas cliniques illustrent la pertinence de ce double mouvement dans l’espace psychothérapeutique, s’appuyant sur le langage et le regard, pour soutenir un travail de (re)subjectivation et de reconstruction narcissique, et accompagner le sujet vers une (ré)appropriation de son visage. The face symbolically represents the underpinning of identity. In a department of maxillofacial surgery, deformed and disfigured faces make up a clinical practice of facial monstrosity. Frequently verbalized, the reference to monstrosity seems self-evident and the notion of the monster shares with facial deformity its principal characteristics: archaism, excess, paradox and hybridity. The category of the monster illuminates the psychic processes at the heart of facial deformity, where subjectivity is often in difficulty. To appropriate this monstrous face, patients may bring to bear their creative capacities through infantile somatic theories from which archaic processes emerge which are received in therapeutic listening. In this very particular therapeutic situation, the specular dimension is significant, and the psychologist must thus rethink his or her clinical posture; if the encounter with the subject constitutes the occasion for the articulation in words of the monstrous face, the clinician also plays the role of a symbolic mirror. Clinical case studies here illustrate the pertinence of this double movement in psychotherapeutic space, based on language and gaze, to support the work of (re)subjectivation and narcissistic reconstruction, and to accompany the subject towards the (re)appropriation of his or her face.

  • Julia Pastrana, the “extraordinary lady”

      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 January 2017

      Julia Pastrana was a Mexican woman whose “extraordinary” appearance led to her being displayed throughout Europe and America, first as a freak, then as a specimen. Recently, she was reburied in her birthplace. This essay considers the ways that Pastrana's display both reinforces and challenges the lines between the self and other, human and non-human, ordinary and extraordinary that such spectacles rely upon. It further suggests how discursive systems, such as race, gender, normativity, and humanness intertwine in the social practices that constitute them. By analyzing how Pastrana's display and recent repatriation and burial in Sinaloa invest her body with different meanings, this essay traces more complexly the processes that socially mark human bodies in order to reveal and explicate the inner workings of representational systems, such as race, gender, ethnicity, and disability.

      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 23 January 2017

      Cet article propose un autre cadrage de la relation des disability studies à la sociologie du handicap comme « déviance » ou « stigmate ». On montrera leur héritage direct du travail de dénaturalisation engagé par les chercheurs qui, à partir de la fin des années 1950, ont dynamité cette notion de « déviance » et ont enquêté de façon nouvelle sur la délinquance, la toxicomanie, la folie, l’homosexualité… Eliot Freidson (1966) a déplacé le regard du « handicapé », traité comme un malade à réhabiliter, vers les « faiseurs de handicap » : quelles sont les juridictions professionnelles des spécialistes habilités à l’identifier et à le soigner et dans quelles arènes publiques le handicap s’est-il institutionnalisé en problème social ? Fred Davis (1961) a, de son côté, exploré une autre voie, proche de celle d’Erving Goffman (1963) : comment dans des situations de coprésence entre personnes avec et sans handicap visible, le stigmate est-il coproduit, réifié ou neutralisé ? Une troisième voie, celle de la revendication politique, portée par le disability rights movement, a été retravaillée par John Kitsuse en 1980 avec sa notion de « déviance tertiaire ». Tout en assumant l’héritage des années 1960, ce concept prend acte de la capacité d’agir des personnes en situation de handicap, de revendiquer des droits, d’inventer une expérience collective et d’aménager des environnements de vie. This article brings new insight into the relationship between disability studies and the sociology of handicap as “deviance” and “stigma”. Disability studies grew up in a tight connection with the disability rights movement, but one of their roots was the new way of conceiving delinquency, addiction, madness, homosexuality, and handicap, which emerged in the 1960s. Eliot Freidson (1966) shifted the attention from the “disabled”, treated as patients to rehabilitate, to “handicap makers”. The relevant question was then: which are the professional jurisdictions of specialists appointed to “cure” disabled people? In which organizational arenas is disability institutionalized as a problem to be solved? Fred Davis (1961), for his part, explored another dimension, closer to Erving Goffman (1963): how are stigma co-produced, reified, or denied in encounter situations between people with and without disabilities? More specifically, how is the “visible handicap” handled in such face-to-face interactions? A third way has been worked by John Kitsuse in 1980 with his concept of “tertiary deviance.” In line with the 1960s sociology of deviance as “secondary deviation”, this concept of “tertiary deviance” recognizes the ability of persons with disabilities to act, to claim rights, to invent collective identities, and to experience and create new life ecologies.

      This paper recounts the work of the American artist collective Yelling Clinic, a group of artists who have direct experience of disability and war, in collaboration with Vietnamese disabled artists and activists in Vietnam in 2011. Focusing on the toxic ecological effects of the herbicide Agent Orange, the essay explores the ethics of Agent Orange representation, focusing on a series of art pieces (and the collaborations that produced them) that work not as documentary evidence of the ravages of dioxin, not as an archive of monstrosity, but as vibrant expressions of and within a complex nexus of disability arts cultures.

  • Close encounters: “Monstrous” bodies and literary knowledge in
           early modern France
    • Authors: Timothy Hampton
      Abstract: Publication date: Available online 13 January 2017
      Source:ALTER - European Journal of Disability Research / Revue Européenne de Recherche sur le Handicap
      Author(s): Timothy Hampton
      In this essay, I study a series of moments from early modern literature in which characters confront “monstrous” bodies or abnormal bodies. I study how these scenes raise issues about the reading of the non-normal body. I trace the ways in which the interpretation of the non-normal body poses problems for fiction, and for the relationship between epistemological authority, on the one hand, and the knowledge generated by literature, on the other hand. I suggest that one way to understand the enduring appeal of the “monstrous” is as a motivating factor that generates innovation, both thematic and formal, in art. I argue that the “monstrous” both motivates literary originality and threatens the categories through which literary authority is articulated. My general argument is that we cannot understand the history of the monstrous without attention to the history of literature – and vice versa.
