Special Section of _Disability Studies Quarterly_: Disability in the
Undergraduate Classroom

This special section will feature writing about disability by
undergraduate students. To put this important writing in context, the
issue will also feature two to three scholarly essays by professors on
teaching disability in the undergraduate classroom. Expected publication
Fall 2008.

We invite students to submit papers and projects related to disability --
including both traditional papers and multi-modal, online work. A teacher
may submit on a student's behalf if appropriate permission has been
obtained from the student authors.

We welcome student submissions on any disability-related topics such as
access, pedogogical or professional issues, disability identity and
intersections with other identity categories, disability politics,
history, culture, language, philosophy. We will also consider fiction or
poetry, with disability themes. Any genre of student work is acceptable â€"â€"

cultural commentaries
book/film reviews
critical essays
research writing
analysis of disability representations in film, novels, or memoir
personal narratives
reflective writing
If you are planning to teach a disability related course this summer or
fall or winter, consider working this call into your course and/or using
your syllabus to invite students to submit their work.

For all selected student work, we will ask the teacher(s) to write a
brief, accompanying critical reflection of no more than 250 words, which
can offer an explanation of the course and/or assignment, as well as some
words about the piece itself and the experience of teaching disability to
undergraduate students.

We also invite longer scholarly essays by teachers on teaching a
disability-themed undergraduate class. This special issue is intended to
provide opportunities for student writing and articulate the many ways
disability informs pedagogy, with particular focus on writing.

Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2008
