The Critical Disability Studies Working Group (CDSWG) is an interdisciplinary team of scholars and creators that engage in an ongoing transformation of disability studies into a critical paradigm. Our research underscores the ways that normative assumptions about the body, cognition and perception operate on ableist assumptions that promote a limited range of understanding of what it means to be human.
