Speaking Power to Truth: Digital Discourse and the Public Intellectual (Athabasca University Press) by Michael Keren
English | Dec. 17, 2015 | ISBN: 1771990333 | 216 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Online discourse has created a new media environment for contributions to public life, one that challenges the social significance of the role of public intellectuals―intellectuals who, whether by choice or by circumstance, offer commentary on issues of the day. The value of such commentary is rooted in the assumption that, by virtue of their training and experience, intellectuals possess knowledge―that they understand what constitutes knowledge with respect to a particular topic, are able to distinguish it from mere opinion, and are in a position to define its relevance in different contexts.

Disability Studies and Spanish Culture: Films, Novels, the Comic and the Public Exhibition (Liverpool University Press - Representations: Health, Disability, Culture and So) by Benjamin Fraser
English | June 15, 2013 | ISBN: 184631870X | 225 Pages | PDF | 12 MB

Disability Studies and Spanish Culture is the first book to apply the tenets of Disability Studies to the Spanish context. In particular, this work is an important corrective to existing cultural studies of disability in Spain that tend to largely ignore intellectual disabilities. Taking on the representation of Down syndrome, autism, alexia/agnosia as well as childhood disability, its chapters combine close readings of a number of Spanish cultural products (films, novels, the comic/graphic novel and the public exhibition) with a broader socio-cultural take on the state of disability in Spain.

Women in both countries were briefly allowed a public voice during times of political upheaval, but were increasingly
