Disability Studies

Courses Available - Winter 2017

DIS-3001-001 and WGS-3501-001 (3) Tuesday / Thursday 13:00 - 14:15

This upper-level seminar course, which builds on DIS-2100(3) Theorizing Disability, allows students to deepen their study of disability-related topics, social models of disability, and the works of key disability studies theorists. The focus of the course may vary from year to year, but a common theme is the consideration of the socio-political meanings of non-conformist bodies. Key questions include: "What is disability?" and "Do intersections of difference (e.g., gender, race, sexuality, class) matter?" With the aim of debating new ideas, students are expected to explore relevant scholarship on their own and with the class.
