Issues at DS-Hum

Because the subscriber bases for H-Disability and DS-Hum have some overlap, I've agreed to share a message from Virginia Bemis (the DS-Hum moderator) about what's happening over there.  Apparently, if your message gets rejected or you get unsubscribed, it's not your fault--there's something going on with their server.  (She mentions Yahoo below, but it might be other addresses too, from what I'm hearing.) They're trying to fix it. 

Here's the message from Virginia:

Disability History Association Newsletter, call for submissions, spring issue

Greetings!  I have some submissions for the spring newsletter of the Disability History Association already, but if you have an item to include, now's the time to send it to me (turley2@roadrunner.com is maybe best).  Submissions must be received by May 1 for inclusion in this next issue.

Current Journal Articles (#155)

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, 2013-2014). Most of them are culled from online Table of Contents sites maintained by journal publishers. We also include book chapters in new collections, cites for new books, and cites for review articles, new books, and new dissertations.
