Disability and the Emotions 

Part 2 of the seminar series hosted by the CCDS at Liverpool Hope University

No crying in disability studies, that was the rule set by Joseph Shapiro’s No Pity in 1993, only to be broken a few years later by Elizabeth J. Donaldson and Catherine Prendergast at the 2000 MLA conference. In the decade that followed there was a proliferation of work on emotion, especially affect, which culminated in Donaldson and Prendergast’s Representing Disability and Emotion, a themed issue of JLCDS published in 2011. Since then the CCDS has engaged with the subject of emotion recurrently. Most recently, Ria Cheyne, Joanne Heeney, Margaret Price, Emma Sheppard, Chris Foss, and Michael Rembis all gave excellent seminars in the Disability and the Emotions series.
