Michael Accinno: “Disabled Union Veterans …” in the Oxford Handbook of Music and Disability Studies
October 15, 2015

Michael Accinno, Ph.D. candidate in musicology at UC Davis, is one of the contributors to The Oxford Handbook of Music and Disability Studies, a newly released collection of peer reviewed essays published by Oxford University Press. His essay “Disabled Union Veterans and the Performance of Martial Begging” documents the lives of disabled military veterans who performed as organ grinders in the aftermath of the U.S. Civil War. Incorporating critical conceptions of disability into musicology, Accinno’s work critiques the stigma surrounding disabled musicians and seeks to include underrepresented voices and sounds in the history of American music.
