Ameil Joseph
Associate Professor, Social Work

I am interested in working with contributions from the perspectives of critical mental health, postcolonial theory, critical race theory, and critical disability studies, to study the historical production of ideas about difference, normalcy, sexuality, eugenics, race, ability and mental “illness” as they cohere, diverge, interdepend and perform within policy, law and practice. My projects have looked at issues of social justice, violence, ethics, confluence, historiography and social work using complimentary theoretical and methodological frameworks to engage respectfully with the complexities of our human condition. I come to this work with over a decade of experience in the mental health field, in supportive housing, settlement, crisis respite, forensic assertive community treatment, community-based early intervention, and governance settings.
