Which theo­re­ti­cal and metho­do­lo­gi­cal approa­ches of con­tem­pora­ry cul­tu­ral cri­ti­cism reso­na­te wit­hin the field of disa­bi­li­ty stu­dies? What can cul­tu­ral stu­dies gain by incor­po­ra­ting disa­bi­li­ty more ful­ly into its tool­box for cri­ti­cal ana­ly­sis? Cul­tu­re – Theo­ry – Disa­bi­li­ty fea­tures con­tri­bu­ti­ons by lea­ding inter­na­tio­nal cul­tu­ral disa­bi­li­ty stu­dies scho­l­ars which are com­ple­men­ted with a diver­se ran­ge of respon­ses from across the huma­nities spectrum.
