Disability, Literature and Culture

The early modern era introduced and heightened critical debates on identity, medicine, and the human body that resonate in contemporary society. This course will focus on the discussions around the notion of disability and its representation, purpose, and function in literature and film by looking specifically at the theoretical writings of prominent scholars of the new Critical Disability Studies paradigm. Taking these approaches, the course will then apply such critical frames to texts and films produced over the last 3 centuries. (Not offered 2023-24).
