Disability Studies is not the study of disabilities. It is a broad interdisciplinary field grounded in the rich perspectives, histories, and cultures of people with disabilities. Students in the Disability Studies minor will have wide exposure to both the lived experiences of disability, past and present, and to the unstable cultural norms that have traditionally stigmatized disability. The minor explores valuable varieties of human embodiment and mindedness; it also asks central questions about what counts as “normal,” and who gets to say why. The DS minor is designed for students interested in expansive intellectual, political, and artistic approaches to disability.
