Robert McRuer is Professor of English at George Washington University.

With Anna Mollow, he co-edited the anthology Sex and Disability.


"A brilliant, ambitious, and wide-ranging book, Crip Times reveals the centrality of notions of disability to global austerity politics. McRuer has crafted new, original, and dazzling theoretical architectures with which to move forward." -- Jack Halberstam,author of In a Queer Time and Place: Transgender Bodies, Subcultural Lives
"Although neoliberalism constantly tells us There Is No Alternative, McRuer meticulously documents and analyzes those who, as the late Manning Marable urged, celebrate our passionate discontent with the way things are." * American Literary History *
"Crip Times demonstrates the hallmarks of Robert McRuers scholarship, highlighting his formidable skills as a writer and theorist. Weve needed a text like Crip Times to unpack the cultural logics of neoliberalism as it attends to disability and austerity, and McRuer does so with an approach that transcends disciplines and national contexts." -- Alison Kafer,author of Feminist, Queer, Crip
"A powerful, inventive, galvanizing book, explicitly and insistently theorizing the centrality of disability to the politics of austerity, without ever resorting to polemic, yet never satisfied with mere critique. Crip Times is a necessary book for our times." * Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability *
