About the Journal

The Indian Journal of Critical Disability Studies (InJCDS) is an open-source, online, international peer-reviewed journal published twice a year (January and July).

InJCDS focusses on bringing forth original research on disability issues that emerge from examining both the political and the personal aspects of individuals, collectives, and the systemic. InJCDS is interested in arguments against or in favour of the idea that both the universal and the specific are essential. InJCDS is especially keen on research highlighting the unavoidable intersectional dimensions of class, gender, caste, hemisphere (with a focus on south Asia), and technology in relation to disability. We encourage constant questioning of binaries, of categories, of foundational positions of others and ours. 

InJCDS is the journal of Critical Disability Studies in India (CDSI) society that was founded in 2012 and has been organising intensive reading sessions in and around universities since then.
