The Inclusive Pedagogy Reading Group welcomes faculty, instructors, postdocs, and graduate students who want to explore topics around inclusion, teaching and learning. It is an open discussion group facilitated by Cheryl Richardson, Associate Director for Inclusive Teaching Initiatives.
This quarter we will read Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life by Margaret Price. 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?"
