Critical Disability Discourse
Crit Disabil Discourse
Published/Hosted by York University.
York University’s Critical Disability Studies Graduate Student Association (CDSSA) is happy to welcome you to our annual graduate student journal, Critical Disability Discourse (CDD). CDD is a bilingual, interdisciplinary journal, publishing articles that focus on experiences of disability from a critical perspective. Journal topics share in common a dedication to anti-oppression and social justice. It is the intention of the CDSSA to bring disability-related issues to mainstream scholastic conversations by promoting and publishing arguments that critically assess disabling social conditions. Discourse about disability is arguably not taken seriously enough in mainstream academic circles; without theoretical backing, it is difficult to effect social change. For CDD’s team, therefore, the journal might serve as part of a greater effort to bring disability to the table and to redress physical and attitudinal discrimination.
