Expanding its Open Access program, the Peter Lang publishing group launches a new peer reviewed Open Access book series: Images of Disability. Literature, Scenic, Visual, and Virtual Arts / Imágenes de la diversidad funcional. Literatura, artes escénicas, visuales y virtuales aims to shed light on cultural representations of disability and the ways in which disability has been portrayed in aesthetic texts over time. Edited by Prof. Susanne Hartwig (University of Passau, Germany) and Prof. Julio Enrique Checa Puerta (University Carlos III, Madrid, Spain), the series comprises edited volumes and monographs in Spanish, English and German. Each publication will be published online in Gold Open Access with a CC BY license and is available through the publishers' website and the OAPEN library. More information.
For more information on the series, hear Prof. Hartwig speak about its conception and genesis in this video by Peter Lang Open and Latest Thinking: https://lt.org/publication/how-disability-portrayed-contemporary-culture
