Disability Studies Quarterly

Disability Studies Quarterly (DSQ) is the journal of the Society for Disability Studies (SDS). It is a multidisciplinary and international journal of interest to social scientists, scholars in the humanities, disability rights advocates, creative writers, and others concerned with the issues of people with disabilities. It represents the full range of methods, epistemologies, perspectives, and content that the multidisciplinary field of disability studies embraces. DSQ is committed to developing theoretical and practical knowledge about disability and to promoting the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in society. (ISSN: 1041-5718; eISSN: 2159-8371)

Note from the editors: 
As the Co-Editors of DSQ, we embrace the task of generating intellectual debate and meaningful conversation around peer reviewed scholarship in the interdisciplinary field of Disability Studies. DSQ is uniquely positioned to engage research and writing across disciplines. Disability Studies scholarship has a firm foundation in the liberal arts while also having practical application to the lived experience of disabled people. We also value strong and creative interventions in the applied fields, recognizing these fields as vital to Disability Studies.

Origins, Objects, and Orientations: Towards a Racial History of Disability

How might the who, the what, and the where of disability studies shift if the field searched for origin stories in unfamiliar places? What novel objects, subjects, methodologies, care practices, and survival strategies can emerge if we assume multi-sited, polyvocal genealogies rooted in historical processes of racial slavery, settler colonialism, imperial expansion, and racial capitalism?
