“Minority Reports. Cultural Disability Studies” is a research space which means to foster the discussion on cultural codes, social practices and dispositifs of government of disability. In “Minority Reports” the disability question is both a research criterion and an interpretative key to social processes which suggests analogies and comparisons. The journal aims to contribute to the drafting of minority reports based on newly elaborated or rediscovered texts, studies, documents, scribbles, pictures and other artefacts, which cannot be defined a priori, since they are reluctant to any standardization and averse to the borders of the discipline. These materials allow the analysis of the forces which can shape the dissent, work the limits of freedom and imagine several and possible multiple futures. “Minority Reports”, in its arrangement and editorial line, promotes theoretical and practical approaches and contributions by independent researchers who represent the issues of disability rights movements and the technical experience of the individuals on whom the effects of power are practiced.
