Abstract

This special issue on disability directs its analytical and critical focus to how the key questions of disability studies can be transferred to literary studies and how disability studies as an academic field – while shedding light on the literary and cultural construction of normalcy and otherness and the means by which disability is created and reconstructed in literature – can embrace and enrich other theoretical frameworks.
