Week 9--reimagining disability

This Tuesday, with lots of help from Rosemarie Garland-Thomson, we will be reshaping, rethinking and redefining disability. Reflect aloud here on the "counterlogics" offered by feminist disability studies for one of these current questions:

  • cosmetic surgery and prosthetics
  • women following the social mandate to pursue beauty
  • the choice to abort fetuses with disabilities
  • the liberal ideology of autonomy and independence
  • the exclusionary, essentialist oppressive aspects of the unity of the category 'woman.'
