Epistemic injustice and disability: the experiences of parents of disabled children

    Activity: Talk or presentation typesOral presentation


    This talk was based on a paper subsequently published in SHI that I co-wrote with Ina Dimitrova (Plovdiv University). Our aim was to demonstrate the usefulness of the concept of epistemic injustice for highlighting the wrongs experienced by parents of disabled children in their encounters with ‘helping’ professionals (e.g., physicians, nurses, rehabilitators, social workers, teachers).
