Volume 11 Issue 3 Now Posted

 
Happy Fall from RDS!

The Fall semester is well under way and our International journal is receiving submissions from all over the world! The newest issue of the Review of Disability Studies (RDS), Volume 11, Issue 3 has something for everyone. 

A few things from our exciting current issue:

Despite the passing of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in 1975 granting children with disabilities in the US access to education and integration in schools, many classrooms remain segregated today. Priya Lalvani from Montclair State University shares her research on this issue in the manuscript entitled: "Rethinking Disability and Inclusive Education: A Teacher Study Group." Exploring institutionalized ableism and the role of educators in the systematic segregation of students with disabilities in schools has important implications for inclusive education in democratic societies.

The tourism industry in Zimbabwe is booming. Despite the fact that tourism is a social right for all, and people with disabilities represent a substantial market for tourism, little has been done to ensure access to tourism facilities for those with disabilities. Oliver Chikuta draws attention to this topic and makes recommendations in his research article "Is There Room in the Inn? Towards Incorporating People with Disability in Tourism Planning." 

The internationally acclaimed artist Lee Mingwei gave the "gift of song" to Maria Timberlake, our Associate Editor for Creative Works. In Maria's article she shares how she felt receiving such a gift, and her experience later as artist for a day in Mingwei's Living Room exhibit at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Maria draws implications from Mingwei's art to her studies on inclusive education and his emphasis on human connection, paying sincere attention to others, and dissolving barriers. She describes her experiences and insights in her piece entitled, "Inclusion and the Gifts of Art." 

Remember, to view the current issue and any content from the past year, you must be a subscriber! So, what are you waiting for? It's a great time to give yourself the gift of knowledge with a subscription to the Review of Disability Studies!! Register and Subscribe today.
