The Ruling Relations of “Normalcy”: Exploring Puzzles of Disability, Illness, and Aging

Tuesday, 17 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
TG06 Institutional Ethnography (host committee)

Language: English and French

Institutional ethnographies begin from problems and puzzles of everyday life.  This session is devoted to IE studies that explore the puzzles of those whose lives or bodies may not fit the regimes organized for those defined as “normal.”  Papers will address the lived experiences of disability, illness, or aging; the operation of facilities and agencies that provide supports and services; the work of advocacy and inclusion; or related topics.
