Our latest issue of The Review of Disability Studies, an International Journal, volume 6, issue 3, is now posted online from www.rds.hawaii.edu . The online version is free.
The latest issue features a forum "Theorizing Culture and Disability: Interdisciplinary Dialogues", guest edited by our U.K. colleagues Dan Goodley, Rebecca Mallett, Rebecca Lawthom, Lucy Burke, and David Bolt. I think you will find that this issue is jam packed with an interesting array of diverse contributions from a discussion of Comedy in British television, to visual representations from the perspective of authors in the United States and the Czech Republic.
Authors, such as Clare Barker, Brett Smith, and Alison Wilde reveal interesting issues and topics from Interdisciplinary Dialogues: Disability and Postcolonial StudiesComedic Immunity to Dialogism, Monologism, and Boundaries: Some Possibilities for Disability Studies and Interdisciplinary Research, as well as the article including the Performance and the Re-Presentation of Disability and Impairment. Additionally, Kateřina Kolářová’s Performing the Pain: Opening the (Crip) Body for (Queer) Pleasures promises an interesting read.
Elizabeth DePoy, and Stephen Gilson have once again graced RDS with their contributions in this latest issue with their Disability by Design article. They are also scheduled to appear at our upcoming Pacific Rim International Conference, April 18 &19, 2011 at the Honolulu, Hi: Hawai`i
