    This advanced writing seminar engages in a critical, in-depth study of the disability experience in the United States, with particular emphasis on the impacts of the law. Drawing from a variety of historical as well as contemporary texts and documents, including Supreme Court decisions, we will address approaches within, and beyond, the law to disability discrimination and exclusion in the workplace, the educational realm, and the public sphere. In uncovering the legal and sociopolitical factors that impact people with disabilities, this course will adopt an intersectional framing by acknowledging the lived experiences of multiply-marginalized people with disabilities, especially people of color. Thus, we will posit intersectional legal and justice-based approaches to equity. Throughout the course, we will allow for an intensive focus on the development of critical thought and reasoning in both written and oral communication.
