"Ableism is alive and well in higher education. We do not know how to abandon the myth of the 'pure (ivory) tower that props up and is propped up by ableist ideology.' . . .Mad at Schoolis thoroughly researched and pathbreaking . . . The author's presentation of her own experience with mental illness is woven throughout the text with candor and eloquence." ---Linda Ware, State University of New York at Geneseo "A very important study that will appeal to a disability studies audience as well as scholars in social movements, social justice, critical pedagogy, literacy education, professional development for disability and learning specialists in access centers and student counseling centers, as well as the broader domains of sociology and education." ---Melanie Panitch, Ryerson University Mad at Schoolis the first book to use a disability-studies perspective to focus specifically on the ways that mental disabilities impact academic culture at institutions of higher education. Focusing on situations such as classroom discussions, academic conferences, and job searches, scholar and disabilities activist Margaret Price challenges readers to reconsider long-held values of academic life. Individual chapters examine the language used to denote mental disability; the role of "participation" and "presence" in student learning; the role of "collegiality" in faculty work; the controversy over "security" and free speech that has arisen in the wake of recent school shootings; and the marginalized status of independent scholars with mental disabilities. Ultimately,Mad at Schoolargues that academic discourse both produces and is produced by a tacitly privileged "able mind" and that U.S. higher education would benefit from practices that create a more accessible academic world. Margaret Price is Assistant Professor of English at Spelman College.
