deadline for submissions:

COVID has drastically changed how individuals navigate their worlds. Many university campuses and graduate programs have made changes. Current graduate students finishing their PhD program and future incoming cohorts, for example, will face new difficulties. Will funding continue to be available? Will campuses remain open, specifically student housing? Will campuses improve the experiences of disabled and marginalized groups so that campus services are not only theoretically accessible to all graduate students but also equitably distributed? How has COVID impacted you and how do you navigate graduate school?

In Edwidge Danticat’s short story “Without Inspection,” an undocumented Haitian immigrant, Arnold, dies from unsafe working conditions at a construction site in south Florida. In the news coverage about the event, the construction company and developer release a statement in which he is referred to as Ernesto Fernandez, probably from the false documents Arnold offered to be hired. Danticat’s story illustrates the blending of Caribbean cultures in the U.S. South through worksites and migration processes, centering labor and labor conditions in immigrant and refugee life.

CFP: Disability and Public Health in the US South

A key part of colonizing in the U.S. South depended on the rhetoric of health, such as Ponce de Leon’s mythical fountain of youth and nineteenth-century boosterism claiming Florida as the “winter sanitarium of the country” (qtd in Knight 5). The semi-tropical warmth of the South invited justifications for intrusion and settlement, and for the environmental destruction necessary to transform a place “heavy with the poisons of malaria” into something habitable for white Europeans. Yet, beneath this rhetoric, we find evidence that ties the South to a history of public health disasters, especially the mistreatment and abuse of people with disabilities.
