Today, International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2019, the peer-reviewed International Journal AG About Gender, International Journal of Gender Studies launches a call for articles directly related to disability and its intersections with gender.

CALL FOR ARTICLES

Re-gendering or de-gendering disability? Living with disabilities in contemporary societies.

Edited by: Rita Bencivenga (Trinity Centre for Gender Equality and Leadership, Trinity College, the University of Dublin, Ireland; LEGS – Laboratoire d’ études de genre et de sexualité UMR 8238 CNRS – Paris 8 – Paris OUEST, France) and Darja Zaviršek, University of Ljubljana, Slovenia

About Gender – International Journal of Gender Studies is preparing an issue on gender and disability. This issue aims to provide an international account of current research and analyses relating to people with disabilities living in today’s societies, in a gendered perspective, with a focus on feminist and intersectional perspectives, allowing researchers and practitioners to learn from success stories and best practices, as well as from the current challenges.

In this special issue the editors welcome in particular research work that address the structural and personal gendered issues in regard to disability; the analysis of the implementation of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities with a focus on article 6; the research on visible and invisible forms of violence against women with disabilities as well as the impact of culture upon disabled women’s visibility; the intersections of gender and disability and the fluidity of social categories of gender and disability; welfare regimes for disabled people and women specifically; sexuality, reproductive choices and normativity; and the issues faced by migrant disabled women. However, articles that address other topics potentially able to stimulate a reflection on gender in connection with disability, will also be taken into account.

Articles from scholars interested in Western and Eastern perspectives are welcome, as are any other perspectives that may contribute to the advancement of the research field.

The papers must be written in one of the three languages – Italian, English or Spanish – in which the journal is edited, and sent within the deadline of 31st May 2020.

ALso, Marta Segarra, research director at the Laboratoire d’Études de Genre et de Sexualité of the CNRS (Paris), talked with the biologist and philosopher of science Donna Haraway on the occasion of the latter’s most recent essay Staying with the Trouble: Making Kin in the Chthulucene (DUP, 2016), in which she proposes new ways of reconfiguring the relations of humans with the earth and all its inhabitants.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement and a much wider public discourse on gender issues, there has never been a better time to study Gender Studies (MA).

Equality and diversity are seen as vital to organisational success, and public feminism has a renewed prominence in culture – yet tackling gender inequalities remains a challenge.

In studying the MA Gender Studies course at the University of East Anglia (UEA) you will explore the fundamental debates, ideas and writings in gender studies, focusing on gendered aspects of society and culture and its links with other inequalities and social divisions. 

Encompassing politics, sociology, law, business and development studies, this MA will prepare you for careers in research, policy, NGOs, the public sector, or for PhD study.
