Expanded Course Description
ENG 240 Introduction to Disability Studies serves as a core course for the Disability Studies Minor and an elective for the English major. The course also satisfies General Education requirements for the Arts and Letters Group and the Identity, Pluralism, and Tolerance category of the Multicultural Requirement. Students will gain familiarity with key concepts and essential texts in the field of disability studies and apply these concepts to literary texts, performances, and the culture around us. Upholding the disability rights movement’s principle of “nothing about us without us,” students learn about disability from the art forms and scholarship of the people who experience it. To show the variety of disability experiences, ENG 240 includes work by people from diverse races and cultures and a spectrum of physical, sensory, psychological, and intellectual disabilities, neurodiversity, and chronic illnesses. The course takes an intersectional approach, analyzing the new dimensions that come into focus when we consider more than one form of difference at a time. ENG 240 acquaints students with key moments in disability history and considers their impact on the present day, especially their cultural impact: How do oppressed communities respond creatively to barriers and remake the past through art? How does disability history reappear in popular culture and stereotypes?
