DS 605G - Theoretical and Philosophical Foundations of Disability Studies


This course derives from a postmodern conception that disability is negotiated into meaning by humans. It is not a fixed, objective thing. Disability exists on a continuum and all humans experience disability at some place on that continuum at some time. Disability is therefore universal, and can teach us something fundamental about being human. This course enables the student to frame the clinical study of behavioral analysis in these cultural terms. It will survey the reciprocal relationship between the disability experience and disciplines such as history, law, fine arts, and education. Upon completing the course, the student will have a broad understanding of disability studies, the skills to apply disability studies to clinical courses of study, and the resources to investigate disability in his or her career.
