This Special Issue of Societies invites original research on arts-based and informed approaches in intersectional care research, policy analysis and critical scholarship in the social sciences.
The aim of this Special Issue is to advance knowledge on the corporealities of care research, policy and knowledge. Papers are especially welcome that examine the appearance and use of creative and intersectional approaches in care research in relation to disability justice culture.
In Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha (2018) describes disability justice culture as “simultaneously beautiful and practical”, while also noting that, “When we do disability justice work, it becomes impossible to look at disability and not examine how colonialism created it.” The ways care appears, is acknowledged, desired, done and undone are inextricably entangled with/in colonial histories and cartographies.
Recognizing this, submissions are encouraged that consider: the art of care/care of art in a postcolonial praxis of resistance; the aesthetics of (anti)ableist and (in)equitable care; the poetics of episodic or “long-term care”; art-making and techniques of care/techniques of justice; artistic expression and/as embodied care knowledge; examples of creativity and intersectionality in care policy and practice in the Global North and Global South.
