Passing on a new find: The Spring issue of Disability Studies Quarterly has a special section with the theme "Education and Disability Studies." You will want to take a look at the articles.

In their Introduction, Susan Gabel and Scot Danforth discuss the history of the special interest group (SIG) of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) entitled "Disability Studies in Education" (DSE). Included: news on their ill-fated journal Disability, Culture and Education and their new book series contract with Peter Lang Publishing. The first publication in this series will be Reading Resistance: Discourses of Exclusion in Desegregation and Inclusion Debates, by Beth Ferri and David Connor.
