Are there any other disability studies scholars out there?

If I ever go back to school, which I'm planning to do to get my PhD, my focus will be on the intersection of disability studies (which is kind of like women's studies, only with disability as the focus instead of gender; disability studies include a whole bunch of fields, from arts to sciences to humanities, and how all these fields deal with disabled people. Disability studies is the emerging field of the moment in academia) and global justice (which is the global movement to eliminate inequality among rich and poor countries). Many people don't realize disability studies exist, but I think I've read every book on the subject and am going to a big conference, The Society for Disability Studies, this week in New York. I'm even presenting, along with my boss, who I have a crush on (I hope he's not a MyLot member, because he doesn't know! But I don't think so...)

I have the same feeling with you,when i was in school,i didn't value these days,i often felt boring,and i didn't learn the object which i didn't like,i thought there was a lot of days to study,i could play games then.But it is not true,i have gratuated,and all have gone,i couldn't go to school,and i have to work to make life,now i often think that things.
