Disability Studies Online Magazine:

Located at the domain address, we are an
online magazine focusing on the academic field of disability studies and
interdisciplinary discussions of disability. Our focus is to consider
disability within the framework of society, rather than as individual
pathology. Viewing disability in this context one can see the
connections and relevance of disability to a wide variety of
disciplines, including: geography, sociology, medicine, social work,
social policy, architecture, art history, anthropology, comparative
religions, philosophy, law, popular culture, media and film, literature,
history, women studies, and education to name a few.

The purposes of this online magazine are to: 1.) Promote disability
studies by creating a space for the discussion of issues, trends and
current literature pertaining to the field 2.) Provide an opportunity
for academics, professionals and graduate students from a variety of
disciplines to publish their work on topics related to disability,
broadly conceived. 3.) Maintain a database of people, programs,
conferences, bibliographies, events and other resources available online
to the public.

We welcome all submissions on academic topics that pertain to disability
including reports or research, theoretical discussions, critical
reviews, book reviews, essays and editorials. We will also post calls
for papers and announcements regarding disability sessions at upcoming
