  • Introduction: About once a month (supply allowing), we post a listing of recently published historical articles about disability (somewhat broadly defined). These articles are usually found on the “current periodicals” shelves at a university library, from the most recent two calendar years (right now, 2009-2010). Some of them are culled from online Table of Contents sites maintained by journal publishers. We also include book chapters in new collections, cites for new books, and cites for review articles, new books, and new dissertations. Contributions are always welcomed offlist and are compiled into subsequent postings by the editor.
  • This is an annotated bibliography of books organized by categories: Community/Culture, Disability Studies, Family, Children, & Relationships, History, Identity, Policy/Civil Rights, Children/Young Adults, and separate categories for Radio, Movies, WWW (Internet), Publications and Videos. The list is a compilation of recommendations from a diverse group of disability scholars and activists and other bibliographies. All of the entries illustrate an authentic view of disability using the new paradigm. Included is disability experience, identity, pride, passion, intellect, and community as we define it. The focus is on disability in the United States, but it also includes international perspectives.
  • The Review of Disability Studies: An International Journal (RDS) is a peer-reviewed, multidisciplinary, international journal. Founded by the late Dr. David Pfeiffer, RDS is published by the Center on Disability Studies at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa.
  • The Disability History Association (DHA) is an international non-profit organization that promotes the study of disabilities. This includes, but is not limited to, the history of individuals or groups with disabilities, perspectives on disability, representations/ constructions of disability, policy and practice history, teaching, theory, and Disability and related social and civil rights movements.
  • Critical Disability Discourse (CDD) is a bilingual, interdisciplinary journal, publishing articles that focus on experiences of disability.
  • A small group of faculty has been working to build Disability Studies into the curriculum and into the culture at Miami. Please have a look at some of the materials we have collected, and the media that documents our work. Also, be sure to visit our Universal Design and Usability for Learning site.
  • The Society for Disability Studies (SDS) is a scholarly organization that is dedicated to the cause of promoting the disability studies as an academic discipline. According to SDS’s Mission Statement, “through research, artistic production, teaching and activism, the Society for Disability Studies seeks to augment understanding of disability in all cultures and historical periods, to promote greater awareness of the experiences of disabled people, and to advocate for social change.”
  • Disability Studies refers generally to the examination of disability as a social, cultural, and political phenomenon. In contrast to clinical, medical, or therapeutic perspectives on disability, Disability Studies focuses on how disability is defined and represented in society. From this perspective, disability is not a characteristic that exists in the person so defined, but a construct that finds its meaning in social and cultural context.
  • Disability Online offers a comprehensive resource center for all disability related resources, topics and services. Our aim is to: Cover all areas that relate to Disability including health, medical, social, employment, family and personal areas. Provide comprehensive online resource library for Disability related material Provide an interactive community for disabled people and their carers and family.
