Harold Braswell

Harold Braswell is an associate professor of healthcare ethics at Saint Louis University. His research develops a disability studies approach to bioethical topics at the end of life, with a particular focus on euthanasia. Drawing on the history of medicine and medical anthropology, he argues for the importance of studying these topics in the particular policy contexts that shape them. This goal informed his book The Crisis of US Hospice, which was published by Johns Hopkins University Press in 2019, as well as his current book project, Inhospitable: How Housing Discrimination Shapes the Way We Die. In addition to his scholarship, he is a recent graduate of Saint Louis University’s School of Social Work and is currently practicing as a psychodynamic psychotherapist. He is interested in the relationship between social work and bioethics, as well as the potential relevance of psychoanalysis to both those fields, and welcomes further engagement on those topics.
