  • Will Martel, “The Necessity for Bioethical Conversations on Disability”
  • Jasmyne Ward, "Ending the Cycle of Oppression of Black Women with the Analysis of Epistemic Violence"

The senior philosophy majors and philosophy faculty chose a common book--Elizabeth Barnes' The Minority Body: A Theory of Disability--to serve as the foundation for the senior comps course and for the seniors' individual papers. The text is available as an ebook through the library, so everyone on campus has access to it. Note: there is no expectation that everyone attending the presentations will have studied the text.
