Call for Papers: Crip Theory and/as Feminist Methodology
From foundational statements in feminist disability studies by Susan Wendell (1996) and Rosemarie Garland-Thomson (2002), to pathbreaking innovations at the intersection of queer theory and disability by Carrie Sandahl (2003) and Robert McRuer (2004), as well as at the intersection of critical race theory and disability (Mollow 2006), the introduction of the ability/disability system into critical conversations about queer feminist methodology has produced a truly dynamic reinvigoration of scholarship on bodies, desires, affects, identities, politics, representations, discourses, performance, and critical positionalities.
As part of NWSA's subtheme #2 on feminist methodologies, I am proposing a panel on the impact of crip theory on feminist methodology. What is gained by this impact? What methodological concerns might we remain wary of? What new critical questions become visible? How are literary and cultural texts changed by this theoretical context? I am seeking 2-3 additional papers on any aspect of this topic to complete the panel. Abstracts must be 50-100 words and must clearly link the individual paper topic to the panel theme and conference subtheme.
The proposal deadline is February 15; therefore, the deadline to submit abstracts for this panel is Saturday, February 12 by midnight (EST).
