Lecture 4 from the “Disability and social inclusion” training course
Life with disabilities is a complex phenomenon tied to multiple social issues, which is why studying it necessitates an interdisciplinary approach. Bulgarian sociology’s first successful attempt to build a comprehensive account of social attitudes towards disability and the people living with disabilities (both across the nation and globally) exists thanks to Prof. Bozhidar Ivkov. Prof. Ivkov’s years-long academic career in the field of medical sociology and the sociology of health care has produced the necessary theoretical-methodological basis for a truly profound look at problems such as social barriers, social inequalities, stigmatization etc. In lecture four of the “Disability and social inclusion” training course, we will examine Prof. Ivkov’s monograph “Sociology of Disability” and its contributions to the Bulgarian branch of disability studies.
