Disability, disease and gifts: a field study report on disabled teenagers
ZHENG Sheng-Xun (Translated by Mon WONG)
 
ABSTRACT Focusing on disabled teenagers living in a community where the underprivileged and impoverished population gathered, this paper explores, through re-examining their conditions of living and their survival strategies, the liberating possibility of notions such as “disease” and “craziness.” By emphasizing how the underprivileged resists against becoming the imagination of the intellectual class, the article attempt to complicate and differentiate the acts of “caring” and further imagine the possibilities of other discourses and resistances.
 
Keywords: disabled, underprivileged, bad subject, gift, caring
