Critical Disability Discourses is a graduate student journal based out of York University that provides a platform for new and emerging scholars, community researchers, and artists who practice and present critical approaches to disability issues and experiences.
For this ninth installation of the journal, our Editorial Team is casting a wide net to gather research and artwork from a variety of disability perspectives emanating from academic study, personal experience, and community-based projects and advocacy. Full-length articles, short films, audio-based works, and photographic essays are among the diverse range of mediums that contributors may wish to explore.
To challenge established paradigms around the location of knowledge, we aim to prioritize submissions from authors and artists whose identities, stories, communities, and contexts have been excluded or insufficiently represented in dominant disability cultures.
Interested contributors are also invited to propose book and film reviews, or select from a list of suggested titles.
Submission Process and Deadline:
Please send your completed submission or review proposal to CDD Managing Editor, Natalie Spagnuolo, at firstname.lastname@example.org by November 20th 2018.

We ask that contributors submitting visual or audio work provide captions, transcripts, and any other content that will help ensure your work can be accessed by our readership.
