Disability and the Global South (DGS) is the first peer reviewed international journal committed to publishing high quality work focused exclusively on all aspects of the disability experience in the global South. It provides an interdisciplinary platform prioritising material that is critical, challenging, and engaging from a range of epistemological perspectives and disciplines. DGS is hosted at and published by The Critical Institute, Malta.
We welcome material from a broad range of areas including disability studies, international development, anthropology, postcolonial theory, rural development, global health, Latin American Cultural Studies, psychology, and feminisms. DGS is not confined in focus to any region, but is particularly interested in areas that remain underrepresented, in particular Latin America.
The journal encourages contributions from disabled activists and theorists from the global South. Our objective is to provide a safe space to critique and challenge the Westerncentrism in dominant disciplines and practices, and the imperialism in the production of ‘knowledge’ and its dissemination.
