Class description

Disability Studies & Postcolonial Studies

This course serves as an opportunity to investigate the intersections between disability studies and postcolonial studies through a focus on literature from the global south. Connections between these fields are *surprisingly* rare, and our work this term will ask why that might be historically and methodologically so. I hope we can begin to stitch together an integrated and more holistic theory that brings together the lived experiences of differently abled and differently located people in one analytical lens. We'll read literature from Zimbabwe, India, Nigeria and Bangladesh, and a few other geographical sites as well.
