Cost, Collectivity, and Care:
What It Means to Support Mental Health in a Time of Trauma
In this talk, Margaret Price draws upon more than ten years of research on mental health and disability in academic culture, beginning with her focus on student mental health in her first book, Mad at School, and sharing new findings from her current study, which focuses on disabled faculty. Using a rhetorical lens, Price focuses on themes including “time,” “cost,” and “presence” to illuminate what it’s like to navigate academe from a disabled point of view. Ultimately, she argues that all participants in higher education will benefit from a cultural shift toward shared accountability and interdependent forms of care.
Margaret Price is Associate Professor and Director of Disability Studies at The Ohio State University, where she also serves as co-founder and lead PI on the Transformative Access Project. Her book Mad at School: Rhetorics of Mental Disability and Academic Life (University of Michigan Press) won the Outstanding Book Award from the Conference on College Composition & Communication (CCCC). Other writing appears in Inside Higher Education, Disability Studies Quarterly, Ms. magazine, and Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy. In 2017, Margaret was inducted into the Susan M. Daniels Disability Mentoring Hall of Fame, and in 2020, she was awarded a Fulbright Grant to study access and design at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Margaret’s current research project is a survey and interview study of disabled higher-education faculty. She is at work on a book titled Crip Spacetime, under contract with Duke University Press.
