Course Overview

This course will introduce students to the field of Disability Studies. As an emerging interdisciplinary field of study, Disability Studies does not approach disability as a ”medical condition, but as a human condition” (Charlton). Instead of studying the causes and rehabilitation of persons with disabilities, we will explore the historical, social, political, religious, philosophical, and cultural influences that ”construct” the category of ”disability.” We will also examine how persons with disabilities construct their own meanings and identities.
