Hi all, Posted below is an announcement for the latest edition of Biopolitics. The topic is "mental illness and leadership." It's a great conversation, featuring commentary by Howard I. Kushner, S. Nassir Ghaemi, Richard Noll, Emily Martin, and critical disability studies scholar Margaret Price. A transcript is available of the video dialogue (scroll down to the section "download") and Margaret Price's video commentary is captioned. Please also check out, if you have not done so, our previous module, "Past and Present of Eugenics," featuring Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Ruth Cowan, Rachel Adams, Paul Lombardo, Marisa Miranda and Gustavo Vallejo, and Nikolas Rose. We welcome suggestions and ideas for contributions--and are particularly interested in critical disability studies perspectives. Let us know what you think! Thank you, Harold Braswell BIOPOLITICS http://bio-politics.org/ A conversation between: S. Nassir Ghaemi (Tufts Medical Center) & Howard I. Kushner (Emory University) With commentary by: Richard Noll (DeSales University) Margaret Price (Spelman College) & Emily Martin (New York University) Biopolitics is an educational website dedicated to the discussion of the interaction of medicine and politics. Our instructional modules feature video dialogues and “annotations” by leading scholars about timely topics with complicated histories. In this module, prominent scholars from a range of fields debate how mental illness may have influenced the decisions of past historical leaders and the potential benefits of mental illness and mental disability for professionals today.
