About SDS

The Society for Disability Studies (SDS) is an international non-profit organization that promotes the study of disability in social, cultural, and political contexts. Disability Studies recognizes that disability is a key aspect of human experience, and that the study of disability has important political, social, and economic implications for society as a whole, including both disabled and nondisabled people.

We are proud of our working committees, and how we have helped shape the field of disability studies. We are working toward compiling greater documentation of our past, and maintaining transparency through updates.
