AbstractThis paper is directed at the scholars who locate themselves within the field of disability studies in education, which Leonard Davis (1997) reminds us is both a field of inquiry and a political activity. It begins by exploring the relationship between disability and other arenas of exclusion, including race, ethnicity, gender, religion, class and sexual orientation. It then considers ways in which scholars might be able to use disability studies in education to promote and extend conversations across these different contexts in their writing and research and in teacher education.
