Call for articles —“within and beyond experiences of institutionalization”

Call for articles from The Canadian Journal of Disability Studies

…In this special journal issue, in honour of the work accomplished by Huronia survivors, we are interested in the experiences of disability and disablement both within and beyond experiences of institutionalization, and look to explore the meaning of survivorship as it pertains to institutionalization and disability. We will be defining institutionalization broadly—examples could include institutionalization within psychiatric facilities, hospitals, and hospital schools (for example, the now-closed Huronia, Southwestern, and Rideau Regional Centres), but could also include jails, detention centers, refugee camps, group homes, and forms of chemical control used in community settings.
