“Disability Discrimination at Work”
Deadline: December 31, 2011
The editors seek original scholarly papers (research, theoretical, historical, philosophical, quantitative or qualitative) for chapter contributions to a book-length anthology that explores disability discrimination at (or in relation to) the workplace.
Topics may include (but are not limited to) the following: the influence that disabilities may have on self-identify, coping strategies, and the extent to which these factors impact the workplace and workers with disabilities (the individual level); the role that co-workers and supervisors play in shaping how disabled workers are treated at the group level; ways in which the internal organizational environment (e.g., programs, job designs, performance reviews, rewards systems, enactment of policies, etc.) facilitates either a disability friendly or unfriendly organizational culture (organizational level); and wider cultural issues that reflect norms, other institutions, media, historical events and/or popular culture that support the prejudice and stereotyping that impact workplace disability discrimination (societal level). A cross-cultural perspective is welcome.
This work is already under contract and due for production in 2012. Authors should use Times New Roman, 12 pitch font, and APA style for citations. (For a helpful reference to APA guidelines see http://writing.wisc.edu/Handbook/DocAPA.html. Please include an abstract that describes the project in no more than 500 words as well as a brief curriculum vitae and contact information. Send all materials by email to Dr. Kathleen R. Johnson firstname.lastname@example.org. The Editors will provide responses within four weeks of deadline.
