As part of our commitment to promoting the work of disability historians at all career stages, the Disability History Association (DHA) is proud to invite graduate students to apply for our semi-annual conference travel award. The award is meant to support travel to professional academic conferences and is not restricted by geographic location. The fellowship committee will award up to two graduate student applicants $250 (US) each to support attendance at conferences between September 2018 and August 2019. The Association will cover expenses in currencies other than U.S.
I am very pleased to announce that the edited collection Literatures of Madness: Disability Studies and Mental Health is officially available in print and electronic form. Literatures of Madness: Disability Studies and Mental Health brings together scholars working in disability studies, mad studies, feminist theory, Indigenous studies, postcolonial theory, Jewish literature, queer studies, American studies, trauma studies, and comics to create an intersectional community of scholarship in literary disability studies of mental health.
