Critical Disability Discourses/Discours critiques dans le champ du handicap

York University’s Critical Disability Studies Graduate Program is happy to welcome you to our annual graduate student journal, Critical Disability Discourses/Discours critiques dans le champ du handicap (CDD-DCCH). CDD is a bilingual, interdisciplinary journal, publishing articles that focus on experiences of disability from a critical perspective.

For more information about the Critical Disability Studies Graduate program, please visit our website at:

The journal’s review board has consisted of students from York University, the University of Toronto, Laval University, McMaster University, and the University of Cambridge, as well as community-based experts.

CDD was conceived by, and is managed by, graduate students, under the auspices of the Critical Disability Studies Graduate Program. Our objective is to create an academic space where emerging researchers might make valuable contributions to the expanding field of critical disability studies.

Journal topics share in common a dedication to anti-oppression and social justice. It is the intention of the journal to bring disability-related issues to mainstream scholastic conversations by promoting and publishing arguments that critically assess disabling social conditions. Discourse about disability is arguably not taken seriously enough in mainstream academic circles; without theoretical backing, it is difficult to effect social change. For CDD’s team, the journal is part of a greater effort to bring disability to the table and to redress discrimination.
