Disability History Association Outstanding Publication Award 2018: Outstanding Article or Book Chapter Award
The Disability History Association (DHA) promotes the relevance of disability to broader historical enquiry and facilitates research, conference travel, and publication for scholars engaged in any field of disability history.
DHA is excited to announce its 7th Annual Outstanding Publication Award.
In 2018, the award committee will accept article and book chapter submissions. Submissions are welcome from scholars in all fields who engage in work relating to the history of disability. Article and book chapter submissions may have one or multiple authors. They must contain new and original scholarship.
Although the award is open to all authors covering all geographic areas and time periods, the publication must be in English, and must have a publication date within the year preceding the submission date (i.e. 1/1/2017 – 5/1/2018). If your article or book chapter was published in 2017, or it will be published in the first four months of 2018, your article or book chapter is eligible for the prize.
The amount of the award is $200 for first place and $100 for honorable mention.
All submissions should be sent to the award committee care of Michael Rembis no later than May 1, 2018.
Authors should arrange for one electronic (.pdf or .doc) copy of the article or book chapter to be sent directly to the award committee at: Michael Rembis, Department of History, University at Buffalo, email@example.com.
In the interest of modeling best practices in the field of disability history, we require that the publisher/author provide an electronic copy in text-based .pdf or .doc file compatible with screen reading software for the review committee. We understand that copyright rules apply, and we will only use the electronic copy for the purposes of the DHA Outstanding Publication Award. Manuscripts not provided in accessible electronic formats for screen reading software in a timely manner will not be considered for the prize.
Please include the full bibliographic citation of your submission in the Chicago Manual of Style format.
The Disability History Association Board will announce the recipient of the DHA Outstanding Publication Award in September 2018.
Members of the DHA Board are not eligible for the award.
