Abstract

Although a universal conceptualisation of disability hate crime does not exist, it is widely agreed that hate ‘hurts’ more than other types of crime. This paper explores the diverse affects of hate crime and the various ways that these experiences can harm those who are targeted. Moving beyond this, this article attends to the diverse ways that the affects of hate can come to shape disabled people’s everyday navigations of their surrounding social worlds. In doing so, it opens up a space for recognizing the unique ways that people navigate, negotiate, and resist experiences of hate within their everyday lives. Thus, the purpose of this paper is to introduce a framework for thinking about ‘everyday hate and affective possibility’ within the everyday lives of disabled people. Drawing upon findings from a recently conducted research project, this article suggests that experiences of hate crime can open up particularly informed ways of knowing and being in the world.
