"Simon Hayhoe (born UK, 1969) wrote the monographs, Grounded Theory and Disability Studies[1] on the application of grounded theory in his study of blindness, Arts, Culture and Blindness[2] on social and cultural factors affecting the arts education of blind adults and school children, and God, Money and Politics,[3] the first book on the history of English education for the blind, since Illingworth's History of the Education of the Blind in 1910.[4] These and previous works on this topic has been cited in papers from subjects as diverse as perceptual psychology[5] to human geography.[6]
Hayhoe's work on the history and the epistemology of blindness is the subject of Course PSYC54 Cognition and Representation at the University of Toronto (Canada),.[7] In addition, his writing has been the topic of discussion on BBC Radio 4 in the UK and syndicated radio in the USA[8] and a theatrical installation project in London by Extant and the Open University."
