Disability Readings

Associate Dean Patricia Kuszler and Christy Thompson Ibrahim, a part-time faculty member who teaches Disability Law, have published a new book, Discussions on Disability Law and Policy, Classified Stacks, KF480 .K89 2013.

This reader contains articles from many disciplines, categorized by disability studies topics. Issues include the disability rights movement, deinstitutionalization, public transportation, inclusion, homelessness, immigration, the International Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and supported employment.

This new book joins the earlier book that Ibrahim edited, An Anthology of Disability Literature, Classified Stacks, PN56.5.H35 D57 2011. (See earlier post.)

Next month, Kuszler and Ibrahim are coming out with a third book (co-edited with Erin Moody): The U.S. Supreme Court on Disability Law Sixteen Modern Cases.

Christy Ibrahim and Erin Moody are both UW law grads.

Ibrahim ('98) practices disability law, including guardianship, Social Security disability, and special education law. According to her law firm's profile, she "has an older brother with Down Syndrome and a mother who is a full-time advocate for parents of children with developmental disabilities."

Ibrahim was inducted into the PILA Hall of Fame in 2009 for her work establishing the Public Service Law Concentration Track.

Erin Moody ('12) is currently clerking for Washington Supreme Court Justice Sheryl Gordon McCloud.
