Young people's embodied social capital and performing disability

Louise Holt

This paper teases out how the identities of young people with mind-body-emotional differences are performed and constructed via their social relationships primarily within school spaces. Drawing upon the concept of embodied social capital (Holt, 2008), the paper explores empirically how young people's positioning within a variety of social networks (re)produces differentially valued identity positionings which can become embodied within young people's shifting senses of self.
