Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies
Call for Papers: Disability and Human Rights
Guest editors: Gian Maria Greco and Elena Di Giovanni

This special issue of JLCDS will investigate issues of disability rights within the human rights agenda from the points of view and methodologies of cultural studies.

“Human Rights” has been one of the most influential concepts of the past three centuries and it is still an essential constituent of modern conceptions of State and society. With the 1948 UN Declaration, human rights has become an even more pervasive concept, shaping everyday interactions at all levels, changing the language and rhetoric of politics, permeating literary works, movies, arts and media.

Cultural Studies of Extraction

A Special Issue for the journal Cultural Studies

Editors: Laura Junka-Aikio (University of Oulu, Finland) and Catalina Cortes-Severino (Universidad Javeriana, Colombia)

The aim of this special issue of Cultural Studies is to encourage cultural approaches to the study of the myriad of conflicts, struggles and other phenomena that have risen in response to the ongoing intensification and expansion of extractivist industries and forms of exploitation. In addition to expanding the potential meanings of extractivism, we seek to bring analytical attention on the variety of popular responses that this extractive moment is generating globally.
