Beth Moulam on AAC and Identity

I think I need to flag this fascinating blog entry by Beth Moulam up. In it, Beth discusses disability, AAC and identity, going into quite a bit of depth about the relationship between the three. I don’t really want to say much about it here: identity – what constitutes us as individuals – is an extraordinarily complex subject which, once you begin to analyse in any detail, you find requires entire thesises to explore properly. It’s a subject which touches upon the ideas of thinkers ranging from Marx (class) to Benjamin (subjectivity) to Lacan (mirrors). Instead of getting into all that though, I would rather let Beth’s work speak for itself than try to offer any commentary upon it, especially given how vibrantly her own personality and ideas come through in this piece of writing.
