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)
Essays may be co-authored
Disability may be broadly defined
All geographical contexts are welcome [this is not restricted to North American or western locations]
To be considered for this collection please send a brief (250-500 word) abstract of your project by October 18.
Full drafts of accepted projects will be due by June 10, 2011.
Questions and submission may be directed to co-editors Susan Burch firstname.lastname@example.org and Michael Rembis email@example.com
