Dialogues on Disability – Christine Overall

Shelley Tremain has published the next instalment in her excellent series of interviews, over at Discrimination and Disadvantage. This month, her guest is Christine Overall, who talks to Shelley about disability, ageism, eugenics, her family, and much more.

Christine is Professor Emerita of Philosophy and holds a University Research Chair at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, where she was the first woman hired on the tenure track and tenured in the Philosophy Department. Her research interests include feminist philosophy, applied ethics, and philosophy of religion and she is currently editing an anthology for Oxford University Press entitled Pets and People: The Ethics of Our Relationships with Companion Animals. When Christine is not reading or writing about philosophy, she enjoys indoor cycling classes, sharing meals with friends, hanging out with family members (especially her grandsons), and creative writing. She belongs to a women writers’ group, whose members meet regularly to discuss each other’s work, and she is involved in theatre performance.
