Current Journal Articles (March 2001-March 2016)

Introduction: Fifteen years ago this month, H-Disability launched as a listserv. One of the first posts was a listing of recent journal articles on disability history topics, modeled on a similar feature at H-Education (another H-Net listserv). Every month since March 2001, H-Disability has featured a list of recent journal articles on disability history topics, almost always on the 1st of the month, compiled with contributions from the community, and a lot of content alerts in my inbox. To keep from duplications, I have kept a “master list” as a draft email, which I updated each month, alphabetical by year of publication.  This master list was only for me; it was never intended for publication, and I didn’t fuss much about consistency. But over the years, I’ve sent it to a few colleagues—mainly because I wanted someone else to have it, in case my own file was ever lost. Recently, former H-Disability editor Dan Wilson suggested I post it to the H-Disability site, now at H-Net Commons. Our fifteenth anniversary as an online network seemed like a very good occasion for doing that.

The usual caveats apply; inclusion does not imply a recommendation; your definitions of disability and history may exclude some of the listed items, and include others; and the bibliography is heavily skewed toward English-language publications (though non-English-language citations are included). And a few more caveats, too: what follows is what was posted to H-Disability between March 2001 and March 2016; I’m sure there are many articles left out, some misspellings and other errors. I’m sharing it anyway, with all the errors and omissions. This is what we built together, for better or worse. Thank you all for fifteen years of scholarship (so far).

Finally: I don’t recommend printing this out on your home printer; it’s over 100 pages.
