Consideration of cultural texts that illustrate or illuminate issues of ability and disability-terms that extend the prism through which human experience may be understood.
At the end of this class, students should be able to: 1. Summarize various approaches to the study of disability in the humanities and discuss how disability studies and disability theory have developed over time 2. Read disability life writing and disability in popular cultural texts closely and critically, using the tools of disability studies 3. Use these skills of close reading and theorizing to generate an original, cultural studies essay that can be presented in a public, scholarly forum

Rollback: Either remove the GPAC attribute or contribute a syllabus and the other materials needed to propose this course for the curriculum.

Rollback: Connie, this either needs the additional gpac materials (sample assignments/rubrics) or we need to remove the attribute for the time being--your choice.

Rollback: There are two options here: (1) Keep the "special topics" nature of the course, allowing repetition, but remove the GPAC attributes, or (2) Keep the GPAC attributes, but make the course non-repeatable. We do not allow topics courses to be part of the GPAC curriculum. Either option is fine with me.

Rollback: Please confirm that I may delete "May be repeated once for credit provided the topic differs" from course description. Thank you.
