Going Deep Book Study: Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life, Winter 2019

Author: Margaret Price (2011)

acilitator: Andrea Phillipson

This book takes a Universal Design approach to neurodiversity, asking us to interrogate taken-for-granted academic values such as presence, participation, and productivity. Price’s critical disability scholarship spans the theoretical and the practical, providing opportunities to reflect on representations of and assumptions about madness as well as tangible strategies for designing purposefully inclusive teaching, learning, 
and research spaces.
