Synopsis

The Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies (JLCDS) focuses on cultural and especially literary representations of disability.

Containing a wide variety of textual analyses that are informed by disability theory and, by extension, experiences of disability, it is essential reading for scholars whose work concentrates on the portrayal of disability in literature.

More broadly, it is instrumental in the interdisciplinarity of literary studies, cultural studies, and disability studies.

JLCDS was founded in 2006. It was launched at the Inaugural Conference of the Cultural Disability Studies Research Network, Liverpool John Moores University, 2007. It moved to Liverpool University Press in 2009.

With an editorial board of 50 internationally renowned scholars, it is edited by Dr. David Bolt, Director of the Centre for Culture & Disability Studies, Graduate School, Faculty of Education, Liverpool Hope University.
