Application Deadline: Disability History Association Outstanding Article or Book Chapter Award

May 15

As part of the Association’s 2024 Award Series, the DHA is pleased to invite entries for its thirteenth annual Outstanding Article or Book Chapter Award competition. The winning article or book chapter, as well the article or book chapter receiving honorable mention, will be announced in September 2024.

Eligibility: The award committee welcomes entries that feature new and original history of disability scholarship. To be considered, submissions must have significant historical content.

This $200 award is open to authors writing across all geographic areas and time periods. The publication must be in English, with first publication taking place between January 1 and December 31, 2023. We are conscious that some journals publish an electronic advance copy of articles that can appear a considerable time before the print copy is published; we also recognize that some journals are running behind schedule so that, for example, an article published in October 2023 might actually appear in a 2022 edition. We will endeavor to be sympathetic in cases of “behind schedule” publication. If you feel that your proposed submission should be considered but might be at risk of disqualification, please email Jenifer Barclay (barclay7@buffalo.edu) for further information.

Submission Procedure: Please send one electronic (.pdf or .doc) copy of the article or book chapter to Dr. Jenifer Barclay (barclay7@buffalo.edu) no later than May 15, 2024. In your email, please include the full bibliographic citation of your submission in the Chicago Manual of Style format.

In the interest of modeling best practice in the field of disability history, we require that the electronic file be compatible with screen reading software (see this site, for example, for a guide). 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 cannot be considered for the prize.
