Event: Denver area, Lennard Davis on March 5 at Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC)

For those in the Denver area, you're welcome to attend a talk by Lennard Davis:

“Depression and Its Cure: How Did Sadness Become a Disability?”
Psychological disorders like depression have a complex social and historical etiology. Given that complexity, can we easily say that depression is a disease and therefore a disability, or must we question the very nature of assumptions concering both illness and impairment?

Anschutz Medical Campus (AMC)
Education 2 North

This is part of a great series coordinated by Dr. Tess Jones, who directs the Arts and Humanities in Healthcare Program at AMC. Our team of disability studies folks from UC Denver, UC Colorado Springs, and CU Boulder will also be meeting with Lennard Davis to talk about developing Disability Studies opportunities at our universities.

Hope to see you there!
