Dialogues on Disability – Tommy Curry

The latest in Shelley Tremain’s series of interviews is out today. In this installment, she interviews Tommy Curry, who is Associate Professor in Philosophy at Texas A&M University. It’s a fascinating read. I urge you to take a look.

Tommy specializes in Critical Race Theory, Africana Philosophy, Black Sexuality, and Black Manhood Studies. When he’s not producing articles, Tommy plays chess and games with his two daughters. He also coaches tennis, strings tennis racquets, watches the tennis channel, and gives his Facebook friends shot-by-shot analyses of Grand Slam matches. Tommy is interested in disability in part due to his experiences with what gets referred to as Trochlear Dysplasia and Patella Alta and is especially concerned with medical and social responses to pain management for members of working-class racial and ethnic groups.
