Abstract
People with disability continue to be engaged in a rights struggle which is reinforced through processes of modernity. This paper reviews the modern framework and its far-reaching effects in influencing understandings of disability, using the Australian experience as an example. An alternative post-modern framework is then presented in contrast. A post-modern conceptualisation of disability is presented as a way forward for understanding disability and for application to disability studies and research.
