US Disability Arts

US disability Arts & Social Change
In this course we will explore US disability culture and social change movements across the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, focusing on the roles and uses of art. We will critically and creatively engage with wide-ranging primary sources, including community-based documentary films, posters and postcards, dance, memoirs, poetry, blogs, online exhibits, sculptures, and paintings. Secondary sources from disability studies will undergird our work. We will ask: who tells which stories; how are these stories told and to whom; what are their impacts?. Paying careful attention to interlocking identities and systems of power, we will also consider tensions within disability communities in the United States.
