[apologies for x-posting, but following on from 'Contemporary Issues  
in Disability' panel at CSAA in Adelaide, this may be of interest.]

'The Politics of Disability in New Zealand and Australia'
a stream for ANZCA 2008, http://anzca08.massey.ac.nz/
convened by Gerard Goggin (U. of NSW) & Christopher Newell (UTas)

full papers due: 15 February 2008
abstracts due: 9 June 2008

Over recent years, disability has emerged as an important, contested,  
and interdisciplinary facet of communication and media studies.  
Disability has also become a salient focus of contemporary government  
and understandings of the social.

In this panel, we wish to offer a stocktake of disability and power  
in New Zealand and Australia. We hope to identity and debate  
contemporary issues in disability, and to bring together and assess  
emerging research and theory -- and to discuss the place of  
disability in communications and media studies. We are particularly  
interested in fostering comparative approaches to the politics of  
disability and impairment across national and regional settings,  
notably between New Zealand and Australia.

In this light, we welcome topics on a range of relevant topics,  
including, but certainly not limited to:

* theories of disability and communication and media
* social and cultural models of disability
* studies of the politics of disability
* the ethics of disability
* disability and communication technologies
* understanding the cultural locations of disability and impairment

Please contact both convenors to discuss possible topics for papers  
or panels:

submitted through the central submissions process.
