EDUC 018. Critical Perspectives

This course engages with disability justice and how its principles can mediate more equitable and anti-ableist educational spaces, communities, and practices. This will include a historical and contemporary exploration of conceptualizations of disability, histories and ongoing forms of resistance, and core values and tensions embedded in disability justice. In doing so, we will co-create a learning community in which we unpack and consider disability justice and combatting ableism within different realms of education. As this term's Educational Studies' "Critical Perspectives" course, we will also reflect on criticality and its role in our identities and practices as readers, writers, and people through the lens of disability justice. In other words, we will spend the semester learning about and reflecting on what it might mean to practice disability justice in our lives.
