Disabilities in Children's Literature: A Special Issue of Children's Literature Association Quarterly

Disability Studies is an interdisciplinary field that began its rise to prominence in the late twentieth century, marked by the founding of the Society for Disability Studies in 1982. The portrayal of disabilities is a well-developed substrata of children's literature, and scholarly work has been produced on it, primarily in the social sciences. ChLAQ will devote a single issue to literary approaches to representations of disabilities in children's and adolescent literatures.

Papers should conform to the usual style of ChLAQ and be between 5000-7000 words in length. Please submit completed essays to Scott Pollard (spollard@cnu.edu) by 1 November 2012. The selected articles will appear in ChLAQ 38.3, Fall 2013.
