Using an anthropological lens, Margi Nowak focuses on the way people with disabilities construct and reconstruct their identities through the contestation and triumph narratives that they create and share with others. She is particularly interested in the struggles of students with “invisible” (e.g. learning and some neurological) disabilities in the educational system. Nowak teaches in the areas of the anthropological study of prejudice, anthropological theory, and Disability, Identity, and Power.
