Call For Abstracts: Anthology on Sex and Disability

 

           Disability and sex come together in multiple ways. In the
popular imagination, however, the terms "sex" and "disability" are, if not
antithetical, then certainly incongruous. To many, the idea of people with
disabilities as sexual or sexy remains largely unthinkable. We are
soliciting proposals for a cultural studies anthology of essays that will
challenge such conceptions, examining, revising, and extending the myriad
ways that disability and sex intersect.
