Call for papers for Critical Disability Discourse journal

Volume 2 of Critical Disability Discourse, a bilingual, interdisciplinary journal which focuses on experiences and analysis of disability, is now available. The Critical Disability Studies Students' Association (CDSSA) is currently accepting submissions for Volume 3, scheduled to be published in the summer of 2011.

Submissions are due by March 1, 2011. To submit, register as an author on the Critical Disability Discourse website and follow the online instructions. Registration is free and editorial guidelines for Critical Disability Discourse can be found on the website.

Critical Disability Discourse was conceived by, and is managed by, graduate students. The journal’s review board consists of over 30students and faculty members from York University, the University of Toronto, Université Laval, McMaster University and the University of Cambridge.

The objective of the journal is to create an academic space where graduate students might make valuable contributions to the field of disability studies. Critical Disability Discourse is meant to facilitate an academic community and to provide a more promising opportunity for those just beginning their careers.

Journal topics share in common a dedication to non-discrimination and social justice. It is the intention of the CDSSA to bring disability-related issues to mainstream scholastic conversations by promoting and publishing arguments that critically assess disabling social conditions. The journal is part of a greater effort to bring disability to the table and to redress physical and attitudinal discrimination.
