Disability Studies Minor

The Disability Studies Program, established in 1997, emphasizes interdisciplinary and intersectional work in disability studies. Accordingly, our course offerings span a wide range of disciplines, including teaching and learning, bioethics, American Sign Language, classics, speech and hearing science and many more. We treat disability as a political, cultural and social process, placing as much importance on structures, relations and representations as on individual bodies.

We value collaborative research and learning, and each year we are visited by distinguished scholars and activists. Recent visitors sponsored by the Disability Studies Program include Liat Ben-Moshe, Diana Louis, Jay Dolmage, Aimi Hamraie, MimiKhúc, Ann Fox and Michael Montoya.
