“Choosing Disability"

The Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania is pleased to announce the publication of a special double-issue of the Kennedy Institute of Ethics Journal on the theme of “Choosing Disability.” This collection of essays, co-edited by Stephen M. Campbell and Lance Wahlert, addresses ethically, morally, and methodologically complex questions attached to the union of disability and choice. The special issue grew out of an interdisciplinary workshop held in Fall 2015 at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, in which a cadre of leading scholars in bioethics, disability studies, philosophy, and medical humanities convened to share insights and critiques on contemporary notions of “choice” in disability discourse.

This collection features essays by Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, Rachel Adams, Eva Feder Kittay, Joseph Stramondo, Stephen Campbell, Lance Wahlert, Sabrina Gill, Teresa Blankmeyer Burke, Erik Parens, and David Wasserman.
