Abstract:The formal study of disability culture began around 1985. Steven Brown, the editor of this Forum, was the pioneer. Of the many indicators of the existence of a culture the first article in the field emphasized artifacts and language. Out of sometimes heated discussions of disability culture emerged disability pride. The concept of disability culture is a vital and important one today for the disability movement.
