Disability Studies in other Professional Organizations

Though the Society for Disability Studies is the pre-eminent professional organization for Disability Studies, given the multi- and inter-disciplinary nature of the field, most scholars are also involved with other professional organizations which in the past decade have become far more amenable to Disability Studies scholarship. Below is a list of the Disability Studies-focused committees/caucuses/special interest groups in other professional organizations which might be worth also becoming involved in, especially if it is your discipline’s primary professional organization.
