WGSS 66.25 Disability Arts and Activism

"Disability Arts and Activism" examines radical disability resistance through the lens of culture and performance to ask the central question: how does disability art make cultural change? Students will learn a history of disability activism as well as the impacts of disability policy and politics across the stage and streets. Using the frame of Disability Justice, students will develop analytic skills to unpack normative conceptions around bodies, visibility, and representation across multiple forms of difference such as size, race, nation, class, gender, and sexuality. We will explore the performance involved in protest, alongside the protest present in disability cultural forms, such as\\u202Fdance, sports, theater, music, and visual art. The course culminates in a research project that crafts an intervention into a local art space to build radical accessibility.
