Introduction: About once a month (supply allowing), we post a listing of recently published historical articles about disability (somewhat broadly defined). These articles are usually found on the "current periodicals" shelves at a university library, from the most recent two calendar years (right now, 2012-2013). Most of them are culled from online Table of Contents sites maintained by journal publishers. We also include book chapters in new collections, cites for new books, and cites for review articles, new books, and new dissertations. Contributions are always welcomed offlist and are compiled into subsequent postings by the editor. The usual caveats: 1) your definitions of history and disability may exclude some of these articles, and include others; 2) listing here does not necessarily constitute a recommendation of the articles involved; and 3) only English-language tables of contents or abstracts are usually culled (but works in other languages are welcome from contributors).
