For the better part of the past twenty years Simi Linton has been one of the most influential and effective public intellectuals in the field of disability studies in the United States. She has also been a tireless advocate for disability arts. Her book "Claiming Disability" is a groundbreaking text in the field of disability studies and her recently published memoir, "My Body Politic" is a captivating view of a life of engagement as a scholar and artist. Now she has entered the blogosphere and I want to urge readers to visit her site and learn more about her public workshops and her views about where things are trending in disability arts. I want to add that I’m teaching both of her books in my spring quarter graduate workshop in disability studies at The Ohio State University and I will be directing my students to her site without delay.
