Disability Studies (DISA)

DISA 2500. INTRODUCTION TO DISABILITIES STUDIES. (4 Credits)

This course will introduce students to the multidisciplinary field of disability studies through an exploration of the diverse ways that disability signifies across the social sciences and humanities. It will interrogate the meanings of disability in a variety of contexts within the U.S. and beyond with a particular focus on the ways that disability intersects with other categories of lived experience (race, gender, sexuality, socio-economic class). Four-credit courses that meet for 150 minutes per week require three additional hours of class preparation per week on the part of the student in lieu of an additional hour of formal instruction.
