Programme Overview

This module will explore the historical emergence of current ways of understanding disability, examining disability as a social issue rather than as a personal trouble. Students will relate disability to themes including equality, equal opportunities and discrimination, contrasting these with traditional individualising approaches. Students will explore power relations, the ways in which these have been experienced by disabled people, and ways in which these are addressed in new narratives on disabling history.

Lectures are delivered via live broadcasts for one hour per week in the evenings. Students may ‘attend’ these broadcasts and interact with the lecturer. These sessions are recorded and made available to students.

Students participate in Discussion forums x 3 throughout the semester

Students complete e-tivities x 3 throughout the semester

Students attend 1 seminar day per semester
