Call for Submissions: Disability history anthology
This anthology is intended to introduce readers to new topics,
interpretations, approaches, and theoretical models in disability
history. We especially seek projects that explore the complex and
interrelated experiences of diverse peoples across time, cultures, and
broad geographical areas and that critically considers the connections
between disability and other social categories, including race,
ethnicity, socioeconomic class, gender, age, religion, and sexuality.
Subjects may include, but are not limited to: culture(s), politics and
economics (broadly defined), theory and methodology, medicine and
science, communities, war and conflict, family and kinship (broadly
conceived), and life span histories. We encourage authors to write in
clear accessible prose, which will enable a wide range of readers to
use this anthology.
Some general details:
Chapter length will be 5,000-7,000 words (20-30 pages)
