About the Journal

The Journal of Critical Study of Communication & Disability (JCSCD) is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed, open access journal published by Adelphi University Libraries. The journal is designed to provide a forum for research, theory, practice, policy, curriculum, and community-based engagement using critical science related to people and groups who are marginalized and/or pathologized for their languaging and ways of communicating. It is a vehicle for connecting scholars, educators, and clinicians interested in promoting transformative research, policy, and practice. The overall aims of the journal are to advocate for linguistic justice, equity, and access for diverse communicators. The editors of the  journal actively seek global perspectives and welcome methods of inquiry that challenge positivist and colonial forms of knowledge, and papers that challenge dominant discourses and ideologies. 


On the passing of Associate Editor Dr. Jon Henner


Dear members of the JCSCD community and readers of JCSCD,

We’re heartbroken to share the news that our beloved colleague and friend, Dr. Jon Henner, passed away on Monday, August 14. He was an extraordinary person and a brilliant scholar. We know that the publication of "Unsettling languages, unruly bodyminds: A crip linguistics manifesto” as the first article in the first issue of JCSCD meant a lot to him. We’re so proud to have played a part in making this important work widely accessible.
