Description: With the help of critical disability studies and anthropology of disability scholarship, this course unpacks dominant cultural assumptions about disability. We approach disability as an embodied experience, conditioned by political, sociocultural and economic forces. Finally, we examine the ways in which disability is experienced and viewed as valuable and desirable.
