SPA383H1: Disability and Embodiment in Spanish American Cultures


This course approaches literary, visual, and multi-media texts of twentieth-century and contemporary Spanish America, focusing on the body as site of multiple differences, lived experience, exploitation, and creative expression. We will consider the roles of disability through cultural production and activism, particularly in the Mexican context, the histories that have shaped ongoing inequalities, and relationships between disability, gender, and race in these histories. Taught in Spanish. (Offered alternate years)
