Resistance is Resilience: Resilience is Resistance


Article I first drafted two years ago now, published today in Canadian Journal of Disabilities Studies,
Vol 8, Iss 4, Survivals, Ruptures, Resiliences.

This is my first artile published in a peer reviewed journal, so:
Whoohoo!

Big up from my voices and and big thanks from me to Katie Albrecht on the editorial team who offered me much patience supporing me in cutting through the crap and “gettin’ me ‘ead round” what I needed to do, and to J, Jeigh, Jay who prodded and poked me to do it in the first place, when could make neither ” ‘ead-nor-tail” of what the call for submissions actually said and dismissed it as just yet another load of ol’ academical masturbatory intellectual wankfest bollocky bollocks.

Whoohoo!

Vol 8 No 4 (2018): Survivals, Ruptures, Resiliences

This special issue of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies (CJDS) includes 18 original works that critically examine survival and resilience as socio-political phenomena. The volume of contributions in this issue suggest the complexities of survival and resilience are important current considerations for critical disability studies scholarship and praxis. Drawing on interdisciplinary disability and mad studies perspectives, and a wide range of methodologies, including autoethnography, poetry, photography, art, commentary, as well more traditional academic methods for sociological and social-geographical, genealogical, and geopolitical analysis, these works expose, resist and rupture unexamined relations to difference and adversity.
