Inside Higher Ed piece by ‘Mad at School’ author is on scholarly job hunt for those with mental disabilities

by University of Michigan Press on February 15, 2011

Price thumb Margaret Price, author of Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life, recently had a piece in Inside Higher Ed on how difficult the academic job search process can be for those with mental disabilities and how it might become more accessible.

“If this system were revised to become more accessible for academics with mental disabilities, all members of the academic world would benefit,” she wrote. “A few relatively simple changes would have dramatic impact.”

The full article is available online.

Price has been in the news recently, with a story about her work appearing in the Chronicle of Higher Education and a blog response of her own to discussions about mental disabilities in an academic setting.
