Rosemarie Garland-Thomson: “Disability Stories” – March 27, 2013

What we as a society think of as disability and what we think about disability changes over time in response to social and political developments. This presentation surveys a range of disability stories, which are cultural narratives and metaphors that interpret the human variations we think of in our present moment as disabilities. It highlights the shifts in understandings of disability and people with disabilities that result from cultural changes over the 20th and 21st centuries in response to civil and human rights initiatives, technology, and consumerism.
