What do Disability Historians Want?

Dear Disability History Colleagues,

Since last week's conference of the American Association of Medical History where a number of us grappled with the relationship between disability history and history of medicine, I've been pondering a question that came up in the discussion: what do disability historians want? I would love to hear what folks on this list have to say in response.  I realize the question is open-ended and rather large.  But knowing that it came up in this context might help focus the answers.
