Idle question for the fediverse and the scholar.social homies:
are there any journals or scholars looking at the intersections between disability justice, carceral studies, and policing? Anything that looks at the prison industrial complex through the lens of disability? Or vice versa?
I haven't read Jasbir Puar's "Right to Maim" yet but I imagine there might be something in there - but I also want to know if this is an area of scholarship being explored - not because I want to or think I can, but because I have questions, and I think there's important solidarity to uncover in the intersections of disability justice and prison abolition
@nemoudeis yeah this is close! https://www.emeraldinsight.com/doi/full/10.1108/JIDOB-12-2016-0023 <-- this article seems to answer some of the more material/quantifiable questions I have - I'm still on the lookout for publications, academic or otherwise, that are explicitly abolitionist or otherwise committed to restorative justice over punitive justice (lol should have made that clearer in my original post).
thank you for this tho!
.@nemoudeis oh but this makes me shrink away from the thing entirely
@jasminee hm if you want abolitionist content maybe you could search the international conference on penal abolition material:
If you can read French there's the GENEPI non-profit. They're not officially abolitionists I think but a lot of their members are:
If you're looking for an abolitionist scholar, Erica R. Meiners was a recurrent name in my quick search, although she seems to be more focused on education and gender studies.
