Forthcoming Edited Collection on Philosophy of Disability

In a post at the end of 2020, I mentioned that early in 2021 I would send out invitations to a pathbreaking edited collection on philosophy of disability. The invitations have been sent out and confirmed; and I have assigned a title to the book. So, here are a few details that I can share with you at this time to pique your interest and anticipation for the book.

The book, to be published by Bloomsbury Publishers, will resemble a reader or handbook but won’t be identified and marketted as such in order to make the book widely affordable and available. Instead, the book will have this excellent title: The Bloomsbury Guide to Philosophy of Disability: Radical Resistances and Intersectional Imaginings. Expected to comprise 32 chapters, the book will be published in the Spring of 2023.

Among the topics included in the book will be these: disability and migration; disability and Afro-futurism; the disabled professor in the philosophy classroom; disability, fatique, and class; neurodiversity; disability policy and philosophy; disability, trans, and emotions; disability, race, and AI; disability and music; disability, animals, and captivity; disability and African philosophy; ableism and ageism; ableism and the disabled student; disability and hip hop; stuttering and speech.
