The complex and varied world of disability is an emerging area of research.  Though disability is a common phenomenon in all societies, yet it has always been given a marginalized status. However, over time, disability is no longer regarded as a medical problem located in a person’s body. The proliferation of interdisciplinary approaches has shifted the paradigm to social, cultural and other domains of episteme. Disability studies foreground a disability-centric paradigm where the everyday lived experiences of disabled people are explored by exposing the politics behind the socio-cultural construction of disability with a focus on the barriers faced by people with impairment. The Literary and Cultural Disability studies have played a crucial role where scholars have used literature as a tool for their critical analysis of disability and thereby giving a fresh outlook to disability and everyday experiences.

The May, 2024 issue (Vol. XIII, Issue I) will focus on disability and everyday experiences. Scholars are invited to submit papers on any issue related to the common theme of disability and everyday life.
