Greetings to all:
This is a reminder to renew your membership in the Disability History Association for the 2018 calendar year—or join us as a new member! Thanks to recent initiatives, DHA membership now means:
Introduction: About once a month (supply allowing), we post a listing of recently published historical articles about disability (somewhat broadly defined). These articles are usually found on the "current periodicals" shelves at a university library, from the most recent two calendar years (right now, 2016-2017).
The Disability History Association is delighed to announce that Laura Micheletti Puaca has been selected for the Publication Award for Best Article / Book Chapter. From Michael Rembis, who has chaired the committee since it was created in 2011: “Each year, the committee receives a number of excellent submissions to the DHA publication award, and each year the committee must make difficult decisions about which submissions represent the best scholarship in disability history. This year was no exception. In fact, any of the three finalists could have occupied the top spot.
Call for applicants – AHA Disability History Mentorship Program 2017-2018
The American Historical Association’s Disability History Mentorship Program is entering its third year. We are now open for applications from potential mentors and mentees who work in disability history.
As part of our commitment to promoting the work of disability historians, the Disability History Association (DHA) is proud to announce the next round of our annual graduate student scholarship to attend professional academic conferences. This award is not restricted by the geographic location or type of professional academic conference. The fellowship committee will award one applicant $250 (US).
Dear friends and colleagues,
I have been asked to write another review essay for YWCCT, which is published annually by Oxford University Press.
