    1. Currently using for 200-level English course--it's a very accessible introduction to disability studies and to the ethics of visuality in general. Will be interested to see how accessible the students find. Garland-Thomson suggests that we go against what our parents always told us ("Don't stare!"), and she suggests that staring can be productive, a first step in a process of knowledge gathering. She distinguishes between "staring" and "the gaze." The gaze seeks to dominate and/or stigmatize. Ce [...]

    2. "The starees we have looked at together in this book show us how to look by showing us how they look. It is all a fine spectacle to behold."An introduction to the lived experience of disability theory, and also a remarkably accessible read for the general reader who is interested on the ethics of staring. The issue, as she explains, is not whether staring should occur (because it will, and perhaps must), but how it should occur. I felt she was on more certain ground when it came to the scenes of [...]

    3. The butler did it.This is a very engaging, often very phenomenological discussion of staring as relational, emphasizing not just the starer but the staree and the ways that staring can be turned toward ethical ends -- recognition, understanding, resistance to the "social pressure to visual conformity" (196).I can imagine using it as a text in undergrad courses, in philosophy, gender studies, disability studies, or any course that does a lot with vision and ethics or politics.

    4. A horrible book. The author clearly set out to bring awareness in how we look at people who are "different", but serves only to perpetuate the societal standard of what is "good" and "worthy."

    5. Currently reading is a bit strong. Really, I need to go back to the beginning. I got distracted by something else in the middle.
