A Society Beyond Blind Inclusion
There are so many people to thank that I know this list is incomplete. I must begin by acknowledging Jim Cultrera, Kevin DeLuca and Norman Denzin. They were—in very different yet equally important ways—instrumental in supporting, pushing and guiding me through the book writing process.
I am grateful for a community comprised of academic colleagues who read and commented on my work, participants who opened their homes and shared their everyday lives with me, and family and friends who gave words of encouragement when I needed it most. They are: Boatema Boateng, Stephanie Bor, Melanie Byrd, Donovan Conley, Janna McMahon Cotterill, Ann Darling, “Denise,” Alice Filmer, Andrea Fontana, Kelly Gates, Kristin Harrison, Leanne Hawken, Susan Kretchmer, Kimberley Mangun, Elly Maran, Cameron McCarthy, Janice Morse, Kent Ono, Kevin Pierce, Randall Pierce, Wanda Pillow, Andrea Press, Dalia Rodriguez, Helene Shugart, “Sister Alice,” “Soledad,” Erma Voss, “Wendy” and Trina Wright-Dixon.
I appreciate the support I received from the University of Illinois, University of Nevada–Las Vegas, and University of Utah. In addition, I am fortunate to have worked on this book with series editor Thomas Nakayama and Peter Lang editor, Mary Savigar. ← vii | viii →
