CFS 360 Critical Disability: Impacts on Children, Youth, & Families

Focuses on the social, historical, and cultural constructions and contexts of disability in the US. Through the lens of critical disability studies, examines how power relationships and discourse function in the lives of people with and without disabilities, and the structures and policies that empower these discourses. Emphasizes intersections of disability with other identities and positionalities (gender, sexuality, race, class, etc.). Impacts of disability discourses and structures on children, youth, and families will be examined.
