Reading and Writing Disability [Emily Rapp Black]
Introductory | This is an introductory course in disability studies. We will read work written by people with disabilities about their experiences living and thriving with disability, and we will also read some literary and cultural theory. We will read fiction in which a person with a disability is the protagonist. Reading will come from the anthologies About Us: Essays from the New York Times Disability Series and Beauty is a Verb by Sheila Black. Participants will be offered generative exercises each week.
