CALL FOR PAPERS
Al-Raida: Women & Disability in the Arab World
This special issue of Al-Raida on Women and Disability in the Arab World calls for papers addressing women’s experiences of disability in the Arab region. It is prompted by ongoing concern that the voices of disabled women in the Arab world, their allies and their representative organizations are seldom heard.
We wish to consider the lives of disabled Arab women in relation to contemporary debates about disability and society. We are interested in papers which explore ways in which disability is being experienced by Arab women. We also have in mind the concerns of women who are mothers of disabled children or practitioners working to support disabled women and girls. In this Special Issue we hope to provide the opportunity to share research and critical thinking on a wide range of topics, which will increase knowledge and understanding of Women & Disability in the Arab World.
