Statement of Purpose: Our association seeks to define both history and disability widely, recognizing that it includes, but is not limited to, the history of individuals or groups with disabilities, perspectives on disability, representations/ constructions of disability, policy and practice history, teaching, theory, and disability and related social and civil rights movements. The DHA is both inclusive and international, which is reflected in our diverse topics and approaches. Membership is open to scholars, institutions and organizations, and others working in all geographic regions and all time periods. The association offers its members a community of active and interesting historians; access to our resources page, which includes a newsletter, conference information, sample syllabi, and helpful links.
