Disability Blog Carnival 59 is up!

The fabulous and amazing Liz Henry has up a variety of awesome posts for the 59th Disability Blog Carnival!

The theme for the Disability Blog Carnival #59 is Work and Disability. It’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month. Thank you to Penny from the Disability Studies Blog for co-ordinating the Disability Blog Carnival through 60 issues!

Thank you all for your contributions! All through October, they buoyed me up and gave me food for thought. I felt intense pride to be part of this very loosely knit online community of thinkers and writers.

Blog Carnivals are totally my favourite way of finding new bloggers to read, so be certain to check it out!

Also, next month, we’ll be hosting the Disability Carnival here at FWD/Forward. The optional topic is disability and intersectionality. Email your links to carnival@disabledfeminists.com, and check back here on November 19th!

  1. I’m not exactly sure what you mean by the topic. Do you mean something like this (that I don’t want to use because I just used it for the ADAPT blogswarm)?

  2. Well, the topic is optional, so you are definitely not obligated to conform to it!

    But, to clarify, we are interested in posts which discuss the intersection between disability and other social justice issues; this site, for example, deals with the intersection between disability and feminism, but disability also intersects with things like class, race, etc.

    Some readings on intersectionality and overlapping systems of discrimination and oppression: Background Briefing on Intersectionality (Rutgers) and Intersectionality (Wikipedia). I hope that clarifies things a bit!
