(RE)CLAIMING AGENCY: CARE, TRAUMA AND THE MEDICAL INSTITUTION by Greta Sharp

A5, 64 pages, Black & white printing, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2022

"This essay explores why reclaiming agency and being able to make autonomous choices over the care we receive, is integral in deconstructing ableism within the existing power structures of capitalism and other forms of oppression. Exploring the doctor-patient relationship and how medical practice is founded on a Cartesian conception of the mind as distant from the body, BDSM as a tool for survivorhood, the links between capitalism and ableism, and reflecting on crip interdependence, and looking at the Disability Justice movement and other care collectives."
