Disability Studies and Ecocriticism: Critical and Creative Intersections

updated: 
Tuesday, January 30, 2018 - 3:57pm
Studies in the Humanities
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018

In disability studies, the environment is already an issue as the social model situates the impaired, and possibly disabled, body in the world. After all, it is the social environment that disables. To state the obvious, this emphasis on the environment substantiates, to a degree, the major concern of ecocritics. However, there are also problems. As Tom Shakespeare points out, the social model is limited: Not every environment, human or not, can be made fully accessible. Can, truly, a mountainous terrain be made accessible to everyone?
