The theme of the inaugural conference of the Disability History Group is to explore ways of ‘doing’ disability history and to debate the future of disability history as an academic discipline. It is to be held on 28 and 29 June 2007 at the Peninsula College for Medicine and Dentistry, Truro, Cornwall. We encourage papers from any historical period which explore the various ways in which historians or those working on historical topics approach disability history. Papers can be purely theoretical in nature or showcase an approach to research or analysis. This conference will also mark the formal launch of the Disability History Group. The creation of the group and this conference indicates the growing significance of this rising academic discipline. We invite contributions from anyone working on disability history. Proposals of no longer than 300 words should be sent to Wendy Gagen.
