The goals of this Seminar course are two-fold: first, to provide knowledge about the interconnections between disability, discourses and social practices; second to provide students with the opportunity to pursue an issue of interest to them and to share their discoveries, thoughts and questions regarding this issue with their classmates. The course invites students to examine how cultural interpretations interact with biology or psychophysiology and social interactions to produce distinctive forms of disability.

Permission of the department required.


6 credit units of 300-level Psychology.
