Representing Disability

FULL COURSE DESCRIPTION

Professor: Katherine Williams
Subject: English
Course Code: ENG197H1F
Time: Wednesday 11:00 – 13:00

Understanding disability as a cultural concept—not a medical condition or personal misfortune—that describes how human variation matters in the world, this course asks: how do literary texts represent physical and intellectual disability? Reading drama, fiction, and poetry, we will consider how disability prompts new strategies of writing and thinking.
