FREN 3614: Disabled Bodies, Minds and Selves in French Literature, Culture and Art

3 Credits

At any given moment in history, what are the socio-cultural forces that give rise to an understanding of physical difference? What forces enable self-expression, self-determination, and liberation from this understanding? This course explores the history of disability and the representations of disability in literature, art, and culture. We will investigate theory and praxis of disability studies in France. Spanning the Renaissance to the present day, this course seeks to understand the experiences of disabled people and their communities in different periods, through a variety of genres and media, exploring medical histories, representation (for a public presumed to be able-bodied), memoir, activism, and art and literature by disabled people.
