GEDU 733 - Disability Studies in Ed

Unit(s): 3

Across the field of disability studies, disability is defined not as a deficit inherent in certain body/minds, but rather as a relationship of differential power/privilege and constructed contextually. In this course we will look at the social meaning and material consequences of disability in various cultural and historical spaces, and how these have influenced educational opportunities for students who are labeled with disability. Epistemological and theoretical differences between disability studies in education, and traditional, special education will be explored to understand deeply-divided approaches to research and practice, as they relate to student disability. We will also understand how disability intersect and co-constructs other identity markers in educational spaces, nationally and globally.
