CORE 002 SC - Constructions of (Dis)Ability


This course focuses on the ways our society is structured around particular norms for “ability” and on the different kinds of violence done to those who do not fit these norms. After discussing how “normal” and “abnormal” bodies have been defined and categorized throughout modern history in literature and science, we examine the current implications of those definitions and categories. We will discuss contemporary debates about the incorporation of non-normative bodies and behaviors into social spaces and consider whether we must modify our bodies or the institutional and social spaces that they inhabit.

Course Credit: 1.0
