Current Journal Articles and New Books (#238/ / June 2021)
Introduction: About once a month, we post a list of recently published books and journal articles about the history of disability (somewhat broadly defined). We also include book chapters in new collections, book reviews, dissertations, podcasts, and other materials. A few caveats: (1) your definitions of history and disability may exclude some of these publications and include others; (2) listing here does not constitute a recommendation of the works; and (3) only English-language publications are usually culled but we welcome works in other languages from contributors.

Jessica Martucci and Britt Dahlberg “Afterlives of Pandemics Past and Present,” The Beyond Better Project (Summer 2021), on Instagram @TheBeyondBetterProject. “In this ongoing exhibit series curated specifically for Instagram, excerpts from oral history interviews with survivors of COVID19 and polio are paired with photographs and original artworks created for the project by disabled artists.”
Disability historian and historian of medicine Daniel J. Wilson died peacefully at his home in Bethlehem, PA on June 11, 2021. He taught at Muhlenberg College from 1978 until his retirement in 2018. Although he started out as an intellectual historian, he eventually became known for his teaching and research on the history of disease, medicine, and public health. Dan is the author of numerous groundbreaking books and articles that delve into the experiential aspects of living with polio. A polio survivor himself, his approach caught the attention of scholars from both the history of medicine and disability history. Among his other writings, his book Living with Polio. The Epidemic and its Survivors provides a particularly poignant and detailed analysis of polio survivor narratives that has helped expand work in this area beyond the triumphant story of the polio vaccine. This past year, his work took on a heightened importance in light of the COVID19 pandemic and the emergence of a whole new generation of survivors, a parallel he had just begun to explore in a recent article in the Bulletin of the History of Medicine titled “Epidemics & Disability.” You can read more from the Disability History Association here: http://allofusdha.org/editorial/a-tribute-to-dan-wilson/ http://allofusdha.org/editorial/a-tribute-to-dan-wilson/.
