Advisory Committee on Disability

Established as a joint task force with the Disability History Association in June 2008. The task force submitted its report to Council in June 2011. The advisory committee will continue to serve to help implement the recommendations in the report.

Purpose: Gather information about the concerns of historians with disabilities and propose concrete, practical solutions for as many of them as possible. One focus of attention will be the annual meetings of the AHA and the possibilities and costs of making them accessible to all members. But the task force will also attend more broadly to the special problems faced by historians with disabilities in the job market and in all stages of their careers.
