"Rejecting the well-worn narratives of pity, scorn, othering, and medicalization that exist primarily for the benefit of the non-disabled, disabled people insist on better and richer stories about disability as a way of being and a way of knowing," writes guest editor Charles L. Hughes. "This issue is rooted in a commitment to this call."
