Journal of Literary & Cultural Disability Studies
The Journal of Literary & Cultural 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, May 26, 2007. It moved to Liverpool University Press in 2009. The journal 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 the journal is instrumental in the interdisciplinarity of literary studies, cultural studies, and disability studies.
The journal is supported by an editorial board of 50 internationally renowned scholars. It is edited by Dr. David Bolt, Lecturer and Recognised Researcher in Disability Studies, Department of Inclusion Studies, Liverpool Hope University; Honorary Research Fellow, Centre for Disability Research, Lancaster University.
