  • Call for Monographs: Interdisciplinary Disability Studies

    Ashgate Publishing is delighted to announce the launch of a new series Interdisciplinary Disability Studies. Edited by renowned disability studies scholar, Mark Sherry (author of Disability Hate Crimes), this series will reflect the great strides disability studies has made in exploring the relationship between power and the body. By extending the interdisciplinary dialogue between disability studies and other disciplines, books published in this series will show how a deep engagement with disability studies changes our understanding of the following fields: sociology, literary studies, gender studies, bioethics, social work, law, education, and history. This ground-breaking series identifies both the practical and theoretical implications of such an interdisciplinary dialogue and challenges people in disability studies as well as other disciplinary fields to critically reflect on their professional praxis in terms of theory, practice, and methods. If you have a proposal you think would be suitable for the series, please contact Claire Jarvis: cjarvis@ashgatepublishing.com
