    The digital society comes sneaking in: An emerging field and its disabling barriers2023In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 38, no 5, p. 761-775Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This study examines disabled people’s everyday experience of social exclusion in relation to the rapid growth of digital technologies in everyday practices. It highlights the relationships between the growing theoretical apparatus on how society changes with new digital technologies, and theories about how this might lead to new disabling barriers in the everyday lives of disabled people. To better understand disabled people’s everyday experiences of social exclusion in the digital age, it brings together insights from two different fields: digital technology, mainly in digital social science and digital humanities; and disability studies, with a focus on the digital divide. The study draws on empirical observations, photographs and interviews with adults with various disabilities in Sweden, and analyses their everyday experiences with the help of a theoretical framework.

    Living chronic: Agency and expertise in the rhetoric of diabetes2019In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 34, no 2, p. 337-339Article, book review (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Agency has become one of those central terms to understand both everyday practice with disability and chronic diseases, and modern healthcare in the western world. Today we see a willingness for more patient-centred care at hospitals and new technologies that give possibilities of self-care. This has become a prevailing discourse that stresses individual responsibility and autonomy, but also more participation and better accessibility for care. It is a discourse that has become a central part of the biomedical concept of patient agency. But is it possible to continue on this biomedical track of patient agency? In Living Chronic: Agency and Expertise in the Rhetoric of Diabetes, Lora Arduser goes into depth to critically review this concept and at the same time present a reconsideration of agency when living with disability and chronic diseases. Her case is the chronic disease diabetes, which is an appropriate case for studying agency.

    Motives for entrepreneurship and establishing one’s own business among people with disabilities: findings from a scoping review2023In: Disability & Society, ISSN 0968-7599, E-ISSN 1360-0508, Vol. 38, no 2, p. 247-266Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    As people with disabilities often face difficulties entering the labour market, entrepreneurship and self-employment are often regarded as an opportunity to gain employment and earn a living. This article presents a scoping review that aims to investigate what establishment motives previous studies have identified for self-employment and entrepreneurship among people with disabilities. Four themes emerged: economic motives; flexibility and self-determination; avoiding discrimination; and personal development and being able to contribute something. In the article we discuss the results and relate them to the general discourse on entrepreneurship, which often includes the concept of autonomy. We argue that the findings suggest implications for how to develop support and strategies for this group, to help them avoid ending up in an even more vulnerable position. In this work, the individual’s own motives for establishment are of great value.
