Congratulations to Ann Millett-Gallant, Lecturer at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (Art History Ph.D., 2005) on the recent publication of The Disabled Body in Contemporary Art by Palgrave Macmillan.

The Disabled Body in Contemporary Art is the first book to cross the disciplines of art history and disability studies. Millett-Gallant visually analyzes images of the body in visual culture—from painting, sculpture, photography, and performance art to medical displays to the nineteenth- and twentieth-century freak show—placing the work of disabled and non-disabled artists in critical dialogue. Pursuing the agenda of disability studies, this book examines western art history through a new lens and draws parallels to sexism, racism, classism, and heterosexism/homophobia.
