Focus and Scope

“The knot can be comprised of a single thread, looping in and around and over itself in a self-contained tangle. It can also be composed of many threads, intertwined and bound tightly to one another. We orient to the knot as a metaphor for the complex entanglements of our lives.”

– Letter from the editors, issue 1

Knots aims to highlight original and unpublished high-calibre work in disability studies by undergraduate students. Knots works to challenge normative conceptions of disability and embodiment while contributing new and innovative knowledge to the field of disability studies. It is edited and compiled by a team of senior students and faculty advisors in the disability studies stream in the Equity Studies program.
