A new issue of The Canadian Journal of Disability Studies is now live.
If you have a few minutes this afternoon, please have a look at the first article in the issue, Kate Rossiter and Annalise Clarkson's "Opening Ontario’s “Saddest Chapter”: A Social History of Huronia Regional Centre." This article acts as a great primer for the historic class action lawsuit beginning this coming Monday in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Then, come back and read the other excellent articles in the issue as well, including:
Disability and Poverty: Stories that Resist Attitudinal Barriers to Inclusion
Reflections on Personhood: Girls with Severe Disabilities and the Law
Sheila K. Jennings
Buying time: The S/pace of Advocacy and the Cultural Production of Autism
Anne E. McGuire
Commentary: When Bureaucracy and Policy Leave Ethics Behind: Our Nineteen-Day Battle with Alberta Health Services to Save Our (Independent) Lives
Review of Disability Politics & Theory by A.J. Withers
Jaime R. Brenes Reyes
As always, the CJDS is free, open access, and accessible.
