Course Detail
Course Components:
This course introduces students to, or expands their knowledge in, the field of Disability Studies, particularly examining the intersections amongst disability and gender, race/ethnicity, class, and sexuality. The course explores how bodyminds often considered “bad” can also be understood as defiant, resistant to conventional understandings of “normal” identity. We will examine how disabled people have been and continue to be marginalized, but we’ll also explore how disability scholars, activists, and artists are remapping how we think about and experience gender, identity, and humanity.
