  • Rosemarie Garland-Thomson

    Rosemarie Garland-Thomson is Professor of English at Emory University with a focus on disability studies and feminist theory.[1] Her book Extraordinary Bodies, published in 1997, is a founding text in the disability studies canon.[2]
    Garland-Thomson co-directed a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute on disability studies in 2000, which shaped the development of many scholars who now lead the field, and was a founding member and co-chair for two years of the Modern Language Association (MLA) Committee on Disability Issues in the Profession, which transformed the largest academic professional organization into a model of accessibility for organizations across the world. She established the field of feminist disability studies with seminal and definitional articles in feminist studies journals, including: “Integrating Disability, Transforming Feminist Theory”, National Women’s Studies Association Journal (2002), which is reprinted in women’s studies and feminist textbooks and has been translated into Hebrew, Czech, and Turkish, and “Feminist Disability Studies: A Review Essay” in Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society (2005) which established a canon of feminist disability studies and set an agenda for future scholarship.
