Title: An Examination of How Dominant Notions of Normalcy Inform the Experiences of Non- White Subjects Living with Chronic Illness
Author: Iyer, Minakshi
Abstract: The subject of normalcy within critical disability studies explores the dichotomy of
normal and abnormal and how this informs the way disability is discussed within society.
Using a post-structural and critical approach, this research has examined the intersections
between race and disability within the narratives of non-white subjects living with
chronic illness. What this research reflects is a global conversation regarding the ways in
which capitalism, whiteness and ability impart limitations upon participants in this study,
and how community activism and friendship serve as a form of empowerment and solace
while navigating these structures of dominance.
