Greetings Devva Kasnitz,
A new item has been posted in H-Disability.
Western History Association Disability Studies and Disabled Scholar Award 2023 https://networks.h-net.org/user/login?destination=node/12819491
by Alida Boorn
Application Deadline: June 15, 2023
The purpose of the Western History Disability Studies and Disabled Scholar Award is to promote the place of disability and all of the ramifications that disability, diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion have had in the history of the North American West. It is important to promote and support scholars who study this history, whether these scholars have a disability or not. To read more on the significance and vibrancy of Disability Studies, see Disability Studies and History below.
The $1,000 award, funded by independent blind historian Alida Boorn, will support a graduate student who either is working in the fields of disability studies and western history OR identifies as disabled and who wishes to attend the WHA conference with financial assistance. Funding from the award will assist their ability to research and present academic papers and network with other scholars at the annual WHA conferences.
