"Cynthia Lewiecki-Wilson and Jen Cellio get right to the point in introducing their smart new collection, stating up front the book’s motivation: ‘The figure of the mother is overdetermined and vexed for both feminism and disability studies.’ As a whole, the collection is accessible and straightforward; it could easily serve as a textbook for students new to disability studies (and rhetoric), even as it encourages those of us more familiar with the field to stretch our assumptions of what disability and disability studies can mean or entail. Readers outside of the academy will also find the book useful, as it provides diverse examples of parenting with or alongside disability."—Alison Kafer, Disability Studies Quarterly

"Disability and Mothering names a conjunction that is foundational to many people’s lives; this anthology approaches that conjunction in a rich, textured, readable way."—Robert McRuer, author of Crip Theory: Cultural Signs of Queerness and Disability
