ARhetoricofRemnants“A Rhetoric of Remnants: Idiots, Half-Wits, and Other State-Sponsored Inventions”: A book talk by Professor Zosha Stuckey

Thursday, November 6, 2014
12:00pm to 1:00pm
Cook Library Room 507

In her new book Dr. Zosha Stuckey examines the rhetoric in and around the New York State Asylum at Syracuse. In the nineteenth century—and still today—language, rather than biology, created what we think of as disability. She calls into question many of the assumptions about embodied differences as they relate to pedagogy, history, and public participation. Additionally, she will discuss her next project which assesses conditions of confinement at Crownsville Hospital for the “Negro” Insane in Maryland in relation to the white asylum known as Spring Grove.
