DIS ST Course Delivery Plans 

 

Spring 2023

  • DIS ST / LSJ / CHID 230 Introduction to Disability Studies, Joanne Woiak, MW lecture 10:00-11:20 plus Th quiz section. Contact jwoiak@uw.edu for add code.
    • Hybrid learning: lectures will be synchronous and asynchronous, and will be recorded; quiz sections will be synchronous.
  • DIS ST / LSJ / CHID 332 A Disability & Society: Media & Pop Culture, Ryan DeCarsky, MW 11:30-1:20 [fulfills DS major/minor Subfield C Diversity, Representation, Identity]
    • Synchronous online learning. Topic: "Media and Pop Culture." This synchronous fully remote course will meet two times a week via zoom and provide an in-depth examination of the social construction of ‘disability’ reflected in and shaped by media and pop culture.  The class is discussion driven; together we will critically engage with examples from film and TV, social media, fashion, sports, and art both by and about disabled peoples. By examining popular culture through a Disability Studies (DS) lens, the course will aid you in your journey to understand and consider the ways disability representations in the media reify, problematize, and/or challenge the marginalization of disabled persons. 
  • DIS ST / BH 421 History of Eugenics, Joanne Woiak, TTh 1:30-3:50 [fulfills DS major/minor Subfield B Global & Historical Perspectives; fulfills Grad Certificate elective]

  • DIS ST / LSJ / CHID 430 A Topics in Disability Studies: Disability, Representation & Intersectionality: Cultural Studies Approaches, Ronnie Thibault, MW 1:30-3:20 [fulfills DS major/minor Subfield C Diversity, Representation, Identity]
    • Hybrid learning. Topic: "Disability, Representation, and Intersectionality: Cultural Studies Approaches." What is representation and why does it matter in disability contexts? This course will encourage you to think differently about disability representation at the intersections of race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and nation. We will investigate intersectional approaches to Disability Studies with a central focus on cultural representation as both theory and practice. This class will help you to recognize the ways in which culture and representation work together to frame understandings (and misunderstandings) about disability, how the power of representation operates across media modalities, geographies, and histories, and how disability activists push against the more common stereotypes and tropes that have created dangerous misunderstandings about their lives. This is an interactive hybrid course that includes in-person, synchronous, and asynchronous lectures, weekly in-class workshops, and online discussions and activities. The course is media and workshop intensive and together we will apply cultural studies tools and techniques as we question disability representations across a multiplicity of social media, news, popular culture, legal, and additional media platforms.

    • Topic:  “Other ‘Others’ in US Disability History."  The essay “Disability History: Why We Need Another ‘Other’” (Kudlick 2003) announced the analytic and theoretical tools of an emerging field of study with the potential to “reshape our scholarly landscape.” The terrain of disability history has now expanded to encompass lived experiences and concepts not typically named as disability, especially at the intersections of race, class, sex, and gender. This course will focus on reading recent research exploring communities, activist movements, and methodologies for disability history in 20th century United States contexts.
