The Inclusive Pedagogy Reading Group welcomes faculty, instructional professors, postdocs, and graduate students to discuss texts that focus on inclusion, teaching and learning. This quarter, the open group will consider Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life and prepare to talk about the book with the author, who will be on campus in early March.
The University of Michigan Press notes: "Mad at School explores the contested boundaries between disability, illness, and mental illness in the setting of U.S. higher education. Much of the research and teaching within disability studies assumes a disabled body but a rational and energetic (an "agile") mind. In Mad at School, scholar and disabilities activist Margaret Price asks: How might our education practices change if we understood disability to incorporate the disabled mind?"
The text is available electronically from the University of Chicago Library.
Please register here for the Inclusive Pedagogy Reading Group Meeting on Wednesday, February 19, 3:00pm-5pm, Wieboldt Hall 310 D/E. Please contact Cheryl Richardson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any inquiries.
