This book, which consists of three parts – Visions, Representations and Incursions –, analyzes the dynamics of normalization/assimilation, as well as exclusion/ incorporation, of disability and diversity, proposing a path that crosses visions, representations and interpretations of different bodies compared to a standard defined and recognized as normal. The different bodies (deformed, disabled, mutant, deviant, alien, transgressive, cyborg) carry on themselves – in some cases engraved in the flesh – the stigma of the interpretations and representations that disability and diversity have suffered, and still suffer, in the different periods of Western history. The conviction that runs through this book is that it is the gaze of those who observe the different bodies that favors forms of discrimination and exclusion against people with disabilities or classified by the social system as atypical or uncommon.
