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.
Our program, housed in the Ohio State Department of English, features an engaged group of faculty, caring advisors and passionate students. We regularly collaborate with student groups including the Disability Studies Graduate Student Association, Graduate Association for Mental Health Action and Advocacy, DISCO Graduate Caucus and Abilities. Furthermore, undergraduate students in the disability studies minor may enroll in internships and workshops for credit.
