Cultural Analysis and Disability

This course explores a new perspective on disability, corporeality, and subjectivity: an interdisciplinary approach traversing the intersections and overlaps between relevant social, cultural, political, artistic, ethical, and medical contexts. Our aim is to approach disability as a concept while using the analytical tools of cultural analysis, encouraging interdisciplinarity under a socially and politically responsible outlook. While the focus of the course will be academic, cross-disciplinary collaborations of artistic production, social engagement, and academic analysis are welcome.
