Languages of publication
Interdisciplinary studies on disability are conducted in the world by scholars from different disciplines and sub-disciplines, including special education. This article deals with an analysis of the evolution of the concept of disability studies and its’ implementation in anthropology that was narrowed to cultural anthropology, primarily of American roots with references to British social anthropology. The basic question, which I answer from the perspective of the cultural anthropologists, is formulated as follows: why cultural anthropology is important in the disability studies? I give answers in the context of: ontological, epistemological, rhetorical and political issues. Anthropological analyzes are preceded by definitions of disability studies after Stteven aylor, Bonnie Shoultz, Pamela Walker; Colin Barnes; Dan Goodley; Sharon L. Snyder; David T. Mitchell and Ronald J. Berger.
