Title We Should Also Have a Chance to Be Included : disability, Gender and Physical Education
Author(s) Apelmo, Elisabet
Date 2014
English abstract
The aim of this article is to explore how young, sporting women with physical impairments experience physical education (PE), drawing on research on PE as well as on disability studies. The questions posed are the following: How do the young women handle the two subject positions that emerge as a result of the perception of them as respectively deviant and accomplished, and what are the strategies of resistance they develop. The research fields within which the article is situated are the Sociology of the Body, Feminist research, Pedagogical research, and Disability Studies. With this paper I wish to contribute to greater insight in Social Science research regarding the disabled body as well as the able body. By studying what exists at that margin, insight into the centre can be gained; through the study of the Other (the body which is regarded as deviant), the normal body can be made visible.
