Students actively participate in identifying historical and current day factors and institutions that shape gender.

Additional Course Details: 

While about 1 in 5 people are disabled, people with disabilities [PWD] continue to be largely invisible and marginalized in all sectors of society. This course will be an introduction to the vibrant field of Disability Studies with an emphasis on intersectional feminist approaches to disability justice. The course will explore societal conceptualizations of physical, sensory, intellectual, developmental, environmental and psychiatric disabilities and chronic illnesses in U.S. culture as well as cover key definitions, cri[p]tiques and controversies that have emerged in current research and scholarship in the field. Through readings, lectures, films, guest speakers, written assignments, group presentations and discussions, students will learn about diverse and timely topics such as: the disability rights movement and disability history; the intersection of disability with race, class, and gender; crip theory; LGBTQ+ disabled communities; representations of disabled people in the media and popular culture; systemic ableism and impoverishment of PWD; and the medicalization of disability. Students will gain familiarity with critical disability studies approaches to analyze ableist cultural attitudes and practices and envision forms of activism that center people with disabilities in the larger quest for social justice.
