Jenkins, Richard (ed.):
Questions of Competence: Culture, Classification and Intellectual Disability - Paperback

ISBN: 9780521626620

[ED: Taschenbuch], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR], Intellectual disability - ranging from what is more commonly described as 'mental retardation' to 'learning difficulties' - is a socially constructed phenomenon that varies in important respects cross-culturally. This collection of original essays examines the classification of people as competent and incompetent in the United States, England, Wales, Greece, Greenland, Uganda, and Belize. The contributors, anthropologists and sociologists, argue that it is time for a new understanding of intellectual disability. In contrast to medical and psychological models, a social model of intellectual disability emphasises the cultural and individual variability of incompetence, the intimate relationship between cultural categories of competence and incompetence, and the role of social interaction and networks in its social construction. This book is a timely and original contribution to ongoing theoretical and policy debates about disability.Table of contents:1. Culture, classification and (in)competence Richard Jenkins 2. Mental disability in the United States: an interactionist perspective Michael V. Angrosino 3. (In)competence in America in comparative perspective Patrick J. Devlieger 4. Risk, resilience and competence: parents with learning difficulties and their children Tim Booth and Wendy Booth 5. Constructing other selves: (in)competence and the category of learning difficulties Charlotte Aull Davies 6. Work, opportunity and culture: (in)competence in Greece and Wales Sylvia van Maastricht 7. Slow cookers and madmen: competence of heart and head in rural Uganda Susan Reynolds Whyte 8. States and categories: indigenous models of personhood in northwest Greenland Mark Nuttall 9. Learning to become (in)competent: children in Belize speak out Nancy Lundgren 10. Towards a social model of (in)competence Richard Jenkins.This book advances a conceptualisation of intellectual disability that emphasises its cultural variability and social construction rather than its medicalised, physiological nature. Addressed to disability specialists in the social sciences and medicine, it treats intellectual disability not just as a property of individuals, but also as social phenomenon.This book offers a conceptualisation of intellectual disability emphasising its cultural variability and social construction.260 pagesVersandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00], Neuware, gewerbliches Angebot
