"Concerto for the Left Hand" is at the cutting-edge of the expanding field of disability studies, offering a wide range of essays that investigate the impact of disability across various art forms - including literature, performance, photography, and film. Rather than simply focusing on the ways in which disabled persons are portrayed, Davidson explores how the experience of disability shapes the work of artists and why disability serves as a vital lens through which to interpret modern culture. Covering an eclectic range of topics - from the phantom missing limb in film noir to the sale of limbs on the global market to the poetry of American Sign Language - this collection delivers a unique and engaging assessment of the interplay between disability and aesthetics.Written in a fluid, accessible style, "Concerto for the Left Hand" will appeal to both specialists and general audiences. With its interdisciplinary approach, this book should appeal not only to scholars of disability studies but to all those working in minority art, deaf studies, visual culture, and modernism.
