Talking Enhancement over Skype: Philosophy of Disability Conference

This weekend I had the pleasure of presenting my disability critique of human enhancement for the Philosophy of Disability conference hosted by Adam Cureton and UT Knoxville. My presentation is a slice of a chapter I am preparing for inclusion in the Oxford Handbook of Disability, which defends the claim that the promotion of human enhancement is inimical to disability rights projects (that is, the promotion of disabled lives, and pushing back against stigma).

Miraculously, there were no Skype interruptions during my remote presentation. Thanks to the participants for listening and for some very interesting questions!
