ENGL 196D - (LT) Disability in Literature and CultureSemester Hours: 3
This course examines the representation of disability in Western literature and culture. The overriding concerns of the course will be with how the body’s shape and capacities have been assumed to determine character and fate, how physical and mental impairments have been used in literature to signify moral and psychological states, and how representation may challenge conventional conceptions of “normality” and “disability.” Literary texts from various periods will be supplemented with some nonliterary texts and documentary films.
