Call for Papers Disability Studies Conference Lancaster

Er is een Call for Papers voor The Lancaster Disability Studies Conference, september 2016. Deadline voor de abstracts is 31 maart 2016. Op deze conferentie is er een speciale stream voor Mad Studies, samengesteld door Peter Beresford en Brigit McWade. Ze schrijven hierover:

“Since the publication of Mad Matters: A Critical Reader in Canadian Mad Studies (edited by Brenda A. LeFrancois, Robert Menzies and Geoffrey Reaume) in 2013, Mad Studies has been gaining a higher profile internationally. In 2014, we convened the first Mad Studies stream at Lancaster Disability Studies Conference which brought both established figures in the field and those who wanted to know more together. As a result of this event, an International Mad Studies Network was established and has continued to develop and accrue members ever since.
During the last two years, there have been several events exploring what Mad Studies means, what it might entail in practice in the UK, and what it might offer us in terms of critical scholarship and activism in the field of madness and disability. We hope that this stream will offer further opportunities for discussion, connection, and debate, as well as the possibility of continued collective work.”

Er zijn twee keynote lezingen komen twee sprekers uit Canada een keynote lezing geven: Jijian Voronka en Lucy Costa.
