    Power Threat Meaning framework: new publication

    Posted by Jill Anderson on January 15, 2018 at 15:14 0 Comments

    The framework described here, the Power Threat Meaning Framework, is an over-arching structure for identifying patterns in emotional distress, unusual experiences and troubling behaviour, as an alternative to psychiatric diagnosis and classification. The document sets out the conceptual and empirical basis of such a system and is intended as a foundational intellectual resource. 
    It is important to note that the framework is not tied to a particular level of explanation (social,…

    Medical Education - Mythology Special Issue

    Posted by Jill Anderson on December 12, 2017 at 16:41 0 Comments

    Academic Ableism: Disability and higher education - new book

    Posted by Jill Anderson on November 24, 2017 at 20:00 0 Comments

    Academic Ableism brings together disability studies and institutional critique to recognize the ways that disability is composed in and by higher education, and rewrites the spaces, times, and economies of disability in higher education to place disability front and center.  For too long, argues Jay Timothy Dolmage, disability has been constructed as the antithesis of higher education, often positioned as a distraction, a drain, a problem to be solved.
