MALLETT, Rebecca, OGDEN, Cassie and SLATER, Jenny, eds. (2016). Theorising Normalcy and the Mundane : Precarious Positions. Chester, University of Chester Press.Full text not available from this repository.
Emerging from the internationally recognised Theorising Normalcy and the Mundane conference series, the chapters in this book offer wide-ranging critiques of that most pervasive of ideas, “normal”. In particular, they explore the precarious positions we are presented with and, more often than not, forced into by ‘normal’, and its operating system, “normalcy” (Davis, 2010). They are written by activists, students, practitioners and academics and offer related but diverse approaches. Importantly, however, the chapters also ask, what if increasingly precarious encounters with, and positions of, marginality and non-normativity offers us a chance (perhaps the chance) to critically explore the possibilities of “imagining otherwise”?
