Hastings Rice Family Fellow Founds New Journal on Disability
Joel Michael Reynolds, The Hastings Center’s Rice Family Fellow in Bioethics and Humanities and an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Lowell, is launching a new journal: The Journal of Philosophy of Disability.
Edited by Reynolds and Teresa Blankmeyer Burke, an associate professor of philosophy at Gallaudet University, the journal will feature the highest-quality work in the field of philosophy of disability, and it will be published by the Philosophy Documentation Center on an open-access basis without requiring payments from authors. Although it will cover the full breadth of the field of philosophy of disability, the journal will regularly publish pieces of interest to clinicians, bioethicists, and those in public health. Please see the journal’s website for more information.
Reynolds is codirector of The Hastings Center’s public events series: The Art of Flourishing: Conversations on Disability and Technology, which is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities. Blankmeyer Burke participated in the first event last December.
