Seminar Title: From Eugenics to Resilience? Re-thinking the Connections between Race, Disability and War
Resilience is often understood as a new buzzword or recent framework for making sense of all sorts of things: infrastructure, ecology, humanitarian disasters, and the human mind. Yet ‘resilience’ did not appear from out of thin air. This talk will explore how psychological resilience science is indebted to racist and ableist modes of thought by illustrating the continuities and discontinuities between the United States Army’s eugenic intelligence testing in WWI and it’s post-9/11 resilience testing programme.
