Dr. Harold Braswell

Dr. Harold Braswell, Emory PhD and active member of the DSI while at Emory, is now an Assistant Professor at the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics. His research and teaching examine the intersection of disability studies and bioethics, with a particular focus on end-of-life care. He is currently completing a book-length manuscript that explores how death is defined in US hospice care. This research draws on a year-and-a-half of ethnographic fieldwork in various Atlanta-area hospices, as well as original archival research on the modern US hospice movement. His scholarship has won awards from the Hastings Center, the Society for Disability Studies, and the University of Chicago Program on Medicine and Religion. He is the organizer of the Society for Disability Studies interest group for family members of persons with disabilities.
