Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies: Call for proposalsMonday 7 September 2015
Proposals are welcomed for the Journal of Literacy and Cultural Disability Studies’ (JCLDS) special issue focusing on drama, theatrical performance and disability.
It has been 10 years since Carrie Sandahl and Phillip Auslander’s Bodies in Commotion and Victoria Ann Lewis’s Beyond Victims and Villains. Both these anthologies included discussions of drama and theatrical performance. This special issue of JLCDS extends and focuses these efforts to critical disability studies, analyses of play texts and live performance that is explicitly theatrically framed.
Associate Professor in SEN and Disability Studies at Liverpool Hope University Dr David Bolt, along with guest editors Ann M. Fox and Carrie Sandahl, is also interested in pieces that explore central concerns of theatre, and performance artists who are creating new work or reviving canonical texts that feature representations of disability experience.
