Informationen zum Autor Blake Howe, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Louisana State UniversityStephanie Jensen-Moulton, Assistant Professor of Musicology, Brooklyn College, City University of New YorkNeil Lerner, Professor of Music, Davidson CollegeJoseph Straus, Distinguished Professor of Music, Graduate Center, City University of New York Klappentext Like race, gender, and sexuality, disability is a social and cultural construction.
