GWS 295-01 - Special Topic: Introduction to Disability Studies

4 credits (Fall)
This course will introduce students to the scholarly and activist field of disability studies, which has developed an understanding of disability as a historical, socio-cultural, and political formation. Focusing on how disability and ableism intersect with race, gender,  sexuality, and class, the course will examine how disabled people and communities have challenged dominant constructions of disability, understood and experienced disability as a vector of oppression, and created disabled identities, communities, politics, and theory.

Prerequisite: GWS 111 .
Instructor: Lewis
