Call for Submissions: Public Disability History Blog

Dear fellow disability scholars,

Public Disability History is an international, volunteer-run blog that has been online since January 2015. It is devoted to communication between activists, academics and the public on topics relating to disability history. We publish posts on a wide range of topics: for instance cinema, theatre, museum exhibitions, research, and activism.

In 2018, we are issuing a public call for contributions. Maybe an ongoing or planned project is not yet ready to yield traditional publications? Did you organise an event or in other ways reach out to the public about your research? Did you engage in work outside academia? The blog is a great place to share this with others in an informal way.

Or, maybe you know of someone else who does work relevant to our profile? Do you have a student with an interesting idea? Do you know of activists, museums, theatres etc in your area that have interesting things going on? Please circulate this call!

Blog posts are usually about 1.500-2.000 words and should be written in accessible language and contain at least one picture. Posts are to be submitted one week before publication and go through editing by our team. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide monetary compensation for works published.

Post suggestions (50-100 words, stating the topic, the author, and the month in which you could submit) should be sent to editors@public-disabilityhistory.org before December 15.

Thank you so much for your cooperation, and we look forward to a great year ahead
Pieter, Sebastian, Ylva, Anne & Marissa
