HS 481 - Seminar: The History of Disability in Comparative Perspective

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: One HS 100-level course, one HS 300-level course.  Students explore the history of disability in global and comparative perspective and examine how different societies across time and place, both Western and non-Western, have determined who is able and who is disabled, who is normal and who is abnormal. They focus on selected topics including deafness, blindness, madness, the eugenics programs, and the disability rights movement to understand how disability has been tied to constructions of citizenship, power, and ethics. Students visit several online disability museums and archives and work with a wide variety of primary and secondary sources. Written or electronic permission of instructor. GT
