Demanding Money with Menaces: Fear and Loathing in the Archipelago of Confinement

Dr Owen Barden, Liverpool Hope University 

Date: Wednesday 4 July, 2018
Time: 2.00pm–3.30pm
Place: EDEN Arbour Room, Liverpool Hope University, UK


This seminar explores ways in which, from the mid-19th Century onwards, professions and institutions of confinement have both stoked and assuaged antipathy toward people with intellectual or cognitive impairments, and profited as a result. Under this regime, people with intellectual impairments or perceived deficits are represented as menacing or risky Others; at the same time, the professions and institutions of confinement assume authority over ‘the problem’ by relocating and segregating stigmatised individuals and assuring the public that ‘the problem’ is under control. This move also provides some of those same professionals with captive populations for their own scientific, educational, and capitalist endeavours. Dr Barden gives examples to show that what was evident in asylums in the middle 19th Century continues to this day in widely distributed places of confinement including schools, care homes, and youth detention centres.

Owen Barden is a Senior Lecturer in Disability and Education at Liverpool Hope University, where he is a core member of the CCDS. He is Comments Editor for the Journal of Literary and Cultural Disability Studies and contributor to both Changing Social Attitudes Towards Disability and Disability, Avoidance, and the Academy. His main research interest is in relationships between disability, technology, literacies and learning. 

This seminar is the last in the series, Disability and the Emotions. It is also part of the CCDS day, meaning attendance is free but attendees are required to book via the online store.

Previous events are available on the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies YouTube channel.
