Values such as access and inclusion are unquestioned in the contemporary educational landscape. But many methods of addressing these issues -- installing signs, ramps, and accessible washrooms -- frame disability only as a problem to be fixed.MoreValues such as access and inclusion are unquestioned in the contemporary educational landscape. But many methods of addressing these issues -- installing signs, ramps, and accessible washrooms -- frame disability only as a problem to be fixed. The Question of Access investigates the social meanings of access in contemporary university life from the perspective of Cultural Disability Studies.Through narratives of struggle and analyses of policy and everyday practices, Tanya Titchkosky shows how interpretations of access reproduce conceptions of who belongs, where and when.

Titchkosky examines how the bureaucratization of access issues has affected understandings of our lives together in social space. Representing access as a beginning point for how disability can be rethought, rather than as a mere synonym for justice, The Question of Access allows readers to critically question their own implicit conceptions of disability, non-disability, and access.
