Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2014-2015.

People with disabilities are one in five of us, yet their history, interests, and experiences are seldom reflected constructively in American culture, policy, and environment. This course provides an introduction to the field of Disability Studies and will examine the issues that affect the disability experience, including: the history of medical and social attitudes towards disability in America; the Disability Rights Movement; disability laws and their effects on workplace, technological and physical environments; representations of disability in mass media; access to education, employment, and health care; and contemporary global efforts to acknowledge and enhance the rights and inclusion of people with disabilities.

When Offered Fall.
