About the Editors:

Antony Williams is the Academic Director for the Doctorate in Educational and Child Psychology at the School of Education at the University of Sheffield, UK. He also works as a practicing educational psychologist. His research interests are focused in the area of subjectivity and intersubjectivity, with a particular interest in how psychoanalytic concepts and theory may inform as well as potentially disturb psychological practice.

Tom Billington is Professor of Educational and Child Psychology at the School of Education at the University of Sheffield, UK. A critical psychologist, practitioner and academic, his research focuses on the nature of psychological work conducted with young people and the theoretical bases upon which practice is justified, in particular in the fields of autism and child protection, utilizing qualitative research methodologies, primarily discourse analytic, psychodynamic and narrative approaches. His books include Working with Children: Assessment, Representation, and Intervention (2006), Children at the Margins: Supporting Children, Supporting Schools (2004), and Separating, Losing, and Excluding Children: Narratives of Difference (2000).

Dan Goodley is Professor of Disability Studies and Education at the School of Education at the University of Sheffield, UK. He directs the Masters in Psychology and Education, and teaches in the Doctorate of Education and the undergraduate Education, Culture and Childhood programs. His research interests include critical disability studies, critical psychological and sociological theory, and non-normative childhoods. He is the author or editor of many books in the field, including, most recently, Dis/ability Studies: Theorising Disablism and Ableism (2014), Disability and Social Theory (2012), and Disability Studies: An Inter-disciplinary Introduction (2011).
