Manifesting Medical Abolition: Teach-In Series

The second iteration of this teach-in series, which began in February 2021, is focused on the theme of medical abolition: the analysis of histories of enslavement and mass incarceration alongside imaginings of new ways of practicing health and community care. Sessions are led by faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows from UCSF’s Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, Medical School, and School of Nursing in conversation with scholars and community activists in an informal, student-focused setting meant to facilitate student learning and inquiry. We seek to expand opportunities for anti-racist and abolitionist scholar-activism for students in the health professions through collective, student-led curricular development. All community members at UCSF and beyond are welcome to join.
