SPR Course: “Queering Disability Studies”

 

There are still some open spots in this great new course.

Queering Disability Studies

DIS ST 430/CHID 480

SPR 2017 – MW 1:30-3:20

Open to all majors

Instructor: Kai Kohlsdorf

This course aims to think through what it means to queer an interdisciplinary field of study, specifically disability studies. Despite a substantial lack of engagement with topics of queerness or sexuality within the field of DS, disability is intricately bound to and co-created alongside sex, gender, and sexuality as a socially constructed norm. We will utilize material from transgender studies, gender studies, sexuality studies, feminist studies, cultural studies, critical race theory, poverty studies, feminist care ethics, and more.
