Call for Papers
DSQ Theme Issue: Freakery
Summer 2005

Disability Studies Quarterly announces a Call for Papers for a theme issue
on "Freakery." Since the 1996 publication of the anthology Freakery:
Cultural Spectacles of the Extraordinary Body, the freak no longer
occupies the margins of interdisciplinary scholarly discourse. Many
scholars, following Leslie Fiedler's framing of the "Tyranny of the
Normal" paradigm, have commented on freakery's applicability to and
usefulness in a wide variety of academic, social, and political
discourses. This special issue of DSQ seeks to represent the current use
of freak research by today's scholars.
