AGAINST TECHNOABLEISM Rethinking Who Needs Improvement

by | Read by Maria Pendolino

Contemporary Culture • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2023

Maria Pendolino performs this short collection of essays featuring Dr. Ashley Shew's concept of "technoableism," a type of ableist belief that technology can, and should, "cure" disabled people. Shew uses her experience as a chronically ill, hard-of-hearing cancer survivor and amputee to illustrate how technology helps assist her in her everyday life. But, at the same time, technology is not a cure; it's merely a tool that disabled people can use to better their lives. Pendolino delivers the essays in a way that keeps listeners' attention during technical descriptions while also capturing the emotional heart of Shew's ideas. Listeners will find Pendolino's clear and direct narration perfect for gaining a better understanding of new concepts about technology and disability studies.
