Please join in thanking Dave Headlam for his tireless and longstanding contributions to building and managing the website of the DISMUS interest group. Dave built our web presence from scratch in the mid-2000s and created an essential place for us to gather virtually. Here we archived pedagogical resources and listserv conversations, maintained bibliographies for scholarly and pedagogical resources related to disability studies and music, and posted our news and current events. Though we’ve moved over here to WordPress now and Samantha Bassler has taken over a social media author and web guru, most of the content of this site is copied from the old site built by Dave. Thank you, Dave, from all of us–creating an virtual place for our community to grow was an amazing gift of your time and talents.
How did you benefit from Dave’s service in our DISMUS (virtual) community?
