What is disability? How do the artistic, literary, and media practices of those who self-identify as disabled center non-normative forms of sensation, movement, and cognition? In this seminar, we will explore various forms of cultural production from disabled communities and practitioners in Japan, from disability rights activist-poets with cerebral palsy to outsider art collectives, Deaf filmmakers, and activities surrounding the upcoming 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo. We will also engage with representations of disability in Japanese film, television, anime, manga, and literature, as well as some of the most significant English-language works in disability studies. No prior knowledge of Japanese language, culture, or history required. All readings will be available in English.
