The editorial board invites submissions for publication for a special
edition (June 2005) on disability issues.
Essays may address a wide variety of topics such as the issues of
disability studies as a field;
representations of disability in literature, film, popular culture, the
media;
the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, politics and disability.

Atenea is published by the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, which
sponsored "The Discourse of Disability/Congreso Otras Habilidades,"
the first conference devoted to disability and the arts, in March 1993.
The conference program may be viewed at this site:
