EDUC 50H3 - Introduction to Disability Studies (3)

Back to Course Listing

The course introduces students to various theories of disability by tracing the historical and contemporary ways in which societies define and respond to disability. Disability studies provides a critical framework for understanding the socio-political context of disability and thinking about the extent to which exclusion, aesthetic "ideals", and social policies and practices have significant consequences for people with disabilities. Course work involves an exploration and critique of the dominant views informing schooling policies and practices around disability (usually named as special education and student support services).
