Disability History Association – Outstanding Publication Award 2017

Disability History Association
Outstanding Publication Award

Outstanding Article/Book Chapter Award

The Disability History Association (DHA) promotes the relevance of disability to broader historical enquiry and facilitates research, conference travel, and publication for scholars engaged in any field of disability history.

The Disability History Association is excited to announce its 6th Annual Outstanding Publication Award. The award alternates between books and peer-reviewed articles or book chapters.

In 2017 the award committee will accept article/book chapter submissions. Submissions are welcome from scholars in all fields who engage in work relating to the history of disability. Article/book chapter submissions may have one or multiple authors.

Although the award is open to all authors covering all geographic areas and time periods, the publication must be in English, and must have a publication date within the two years preceding the submission date (i.e. 1/1/2015 – 5/1/2017).

The amount of the award is $200 for first place and $100 for honorable mention (up to two).

All submissions should be sent to the award committee care of Michael Rembis no later than May 1, 2017.

Authors should arrange for one electronic (.pdf or .doc) copy of the article/book chapter to be sent directly to the award committee at: Michael Rembis, Department of History, University at Buffalo, marembis@buffalo.edu.

In the interest of modeling best practices in the field of disability history, we require that the publisher/author provide an electronic copy in text-based .pdf or .doc file compatible with screen reading software for the review committee. We understand that copyright rules apply, and we will only use the electronic copy for the purposes of the DHA Outstanding Publication Award.  Manuscripts not provided in accessible electronic formats for screen reading software in a timely manner will not be considered for the prize.

The Disability History Association board will announce the recipient of the DHA Outstanding Publication Award in September 2017.
