Update on my work

Joseph Carlton Barry is a entering his second year as a graduate candidate at the University of Kentucky College of Education: Education policy evaluation and analysis department. His dissertation addresses prejudicial empirical understandings of disability by focusing on measuring gaps in institutional data related to Faculty with Disabilities.

Alius Modi Fasho or Facultas Marginem: How Should We Consider Institutional Disability/Socioenvironmental Disability, Psychometrically.

Persons with Disabilities have done their fare share of disrupting oppressive systems over the past 50 years or so. However, the Trump presidency provided a stark reminder, not only of our past, but also of our relatively delicate position amongst society. While it was frightening at times to watch the political sentiment of our Nation unfold, the rhetoric of the outgoing president is no longer the biggest threat facing our community. Rather, our unification as a people amongst society is threatened most by the wind of epistemology, having started again to blow over our collective voice, rather than with it.

In the proposed paper, I contrast the notions of Alius Modi Fasho and Facultas Marginem in relation to prevailing understanding of disability, whereas scholars are reaching a precipitous type of moment. By addressing certain aspects of disability that are a condition of the environment, scholars are on the precipice of producing a good which transcends disability (i.e. drastic reduction of societal barriers). At the same time, scholars’ widespread use of the term disability to specify a certain socioenvironmental phenomenon, perpetuates cultural appropriation, putting disability as our shared identity at risk for empirical genocide, if not extinction.

I first claim that Persons/Scholars with Disabilities should be the only determiner of acceptability regarding the use of the term disability. I then point to systemic data which precludes college faculty with a disability to argue for the development of terminologies which differentiate the locus of socioenvironmental dysfunction from the notion of disability.

the dysfunction that despite our expertise in identifying, is categorically not our own; i.e., the dysfunction is based in the socioenvironmental body of societal institutions.

the whims of methodological measures. that could leave us the degree that sociological improvements t their best, understandings of disability are capable of changing potentially dangerous low due to an advancing practice of cultural appropriation. the good, and the way in which scholars are also advancing is he preclusion of disability from systemic oaligning to some degree over the past five years with a leader who’s rhetoric sounded at times, like the political environment of the 1920s.
