Current Journal Articles and New Books (#255 November 2022)
Introduction: About once a month, we post a list of recently published books and journal articles about the history of disability (somewhat broadly defined). We also include book chapters in new collections, book reviews, dissertations, podcasts, and other materials. A few caveats: (1) your definitions of history and disability may exclude some of these publications and include others; (2) listing here does not constitute a recommendation of the works; and (3) only English-language publications are usually culled but we welcome works in other languages from contributors.
If you have suggestions of works to be featured please contact the H-Disability editors on our new email address: email@example.com
