A quick one: Disability & Society free to download for the next few days

I've been busy. Proper posts *will* be coming soon (as he always says...)

In the meantime, here's a quick announcement that i found out very, very late: the journal Disability and Society (which is basically the most important journal in academic Disability Studies) has been free to download for all of April 2011 - which means there are another 2 days of free access to academic articles on disability, from many of the most famous acdemics in the field, going all the way back to 1986!

I'm rushing through it and trying to download everything that interests me now to sort through at some point in the future - annoyingly, it doesn't seem possible to download whole issues at once, so i'm having to go through each one and pick out articles. I'm not downloading absolutely everything, but if anyone reads this after Saturday and sees anything they want but can't get without paying for it, it's worth dropping me an email in case they have it. I'm particularly concentrating on articles that have anything to do with autism, learning disability, education (including school-age and higher education), disability activism, disability and sexuality, institutions and deinstitutionalisation, psychiatry/anti-psychiatry, and conceptualisations of disability as identity.

(Of course, if you have a university affiliation, academic journals are usually free to download anyway, but this could be really useful to anyone who (like me) doesn't currently have one...)
