The Society for Disability Studies

The Society for Disability Studies is a nonprofit scientific and educational organization. It is a multidisciplinary and international organization composed of social scientists, scholars in the humanities, and disability rights advocates concerned with the problems of disabled people in society. The purpose of the Society is to bring together people from diverse backgrounds to share ideas and to engage in dialogues that cut across disciplinary backgrounds and substantive concerns. The Society is committed to developing theoretical and practical knowledge about disability and to promoting the full and equal participation of persons with disabilities in society.

Further information on membership and the annual meeting can be obtained from the national office of the Society. The mailing address is: Society for Disability Studies, c/o Professor Carol Gill, Department of Disability and Human Development, University of Illinois at Chicago (MC 626), 1640 Roosevelt Road #236, Chicago, IL 60608-6904.
