                          Call for Papers: 'able'
                    Edited by Liz Ferrier and Viv Muller

Abled, dis-abled, en-abled, dis-enabled, diff-abled - these terms are used
in various ways by academics, social workers, health professionals, artists
and therapists in the field of what has become known as disability studies.
Who defines the cultural terrain in which these terms are defined and
operationalised is an ongoing source of debate, conflict and tension
particularly around issues of access, integration, normativity and agency.
This issue of M/C Journal invites contributions that engage with these
important debates and is interested in aesthetic and socio/cultural work
that challenges us to think and act beyond constraining boundaries.

Submit papers of 3,000 words in length to the editors at
able at journal.media-culture.org.au.

Article deadline:     2 May 2008
