Philosophies of Disability and the Global Pandemic

If you were away from your computer early in the New Year, you may have missed my previous post about the special issue of International Journal of Critical Diversity Studies on this theme that I guest edited.

The issue, which is open access, includes my introduction to the issue and my article on philosophy of disability, conceptual engineering, and the nursing home-industrial-complex; in addition to these outstanding contributions:

Johnathan Flowers on Sarah Ahmed, COVID-19, and the accessibility of the university and philosophy;

Gabriela Arguedas Ramírez on necro-politics and COVID-19 policy in Costa Rica;

Elvis Imafidon on African conceptions of personhood and COVID-19;

Suze G. Berkhout, Lindsey MacGillivray, and Kathleen Sheehan on the carceral dimensions of in-patient psychiatry during the pandemic;

Emily Anne Parker on Fanon, climate, and COVID-19;

and Sara M. Bergstresser on feminist philosophy of disability, involuntary psychiatric confinement, and COVID-19.
