Disability Studies: (Re)Imagining Disability

Every Spring and Summer the University of Winnipeg‘s  Global College offers intensive 3 credit hour courses on a range of special topics with visiting scholars from around the world. These Institutes generally run for a two week period with daily lectures offered in class or online. Students are invited to take advantage of the unique opportunity to learn from global experts and this year we are being invited to (re)imagine disability!

Disability Studies: (Re)Imagining Disability will be taught by Professors: Michelle Owen (Disability Studies, University of Winnipeg, Canada) and Nancy Hansen (Disability Studies, University of Manitoba, Canada)

The course is designed to provide students with grounding in disability studies and promote exploration of current topics in the field.  The shift from the bio-medical model of disability to the social model opened the way for disability activism and critical disability studies. Primary importance will be placed on the development of analytical skills and critical thinking.
