Judy Bentley and Janet Duncan

Judy Bentley and Janet Duncan, Foundations and Social Advocacy Department, co-edited chapters in the book, Earth, Animal and Disability Liberation: The Rise of the Eco-Ability Movement, recently published by Peter Lang Press, N.Y. Bentley’s chapter discusses toxic environments and transformative technologies, using a Michel Foucault’s framework. Duncan’s chapter examines the concepts of capability and competence, building on Martha Nussbaum’s Capabilities Approach. This edited volume also contains chapters written by Lynn Anderson, Vicki Wilkins and Laurie Penney McGee, faculty from the College’s Recreation, Parks and Leisure Studies Department, featuring their work with the Inclusive Recreation Resource Center. Additionally, Amber George from the Philosophy Department has a chapter on the Disney complex. This critically acclaimed book is the first of its kind to examine the intersectionality of disability rights, animal rights and the environment. Anthony Nocella II, visiting professor at Hamline University, is the first author and was instrumental in securing contributions from leading scholars in these areas.
