This course focuses on introducing students to disability studies methods of analysis in U.S. cultural contexts. We will approach disability as an interaction between non-normative bodies, environments, and social attitudes, rather than traditional understandings of disability as dysfunction, pathology, or deviance. Topics will include: eugenics, sexual subcultures, disability rights movements, media representations, medical gate-keeping, independent living, interdependency, aesthetics, minority, social, and cultural models of disability.
