Disability as Spectacle: Performing Nonnormative Bodies
Description: Lecture, two hours; studio, two hours. Examination through eyes of disability activists and artists interrogating how aspects of body get deemed nonnormative. Investigation of what it means to push against pressure to fit in, as well as how to contest invisibility of some disabilities that happen when normal bodies get defined visually. Use of this lens on disability to research and explore role that bodies play in political battles over who gets socially valued and who does not. P/NP or letter grading.
