Cripping the Arts in Canada

This course will explore disability arts in Canada. We examine how disability arts has contributed to and challenged the disability rights and other social movements. We position disability arts in a Canadian context and interrogate its emergence historically. We explore contemporary issues and debates within disability arts, such as the role that it continues to play in the disability rights movement, whether disability arts can be produced by non-disabled people, and emerging disability arts aesthetics.
