Seats in Intro to Disability Studies Hi All, Please spread the word to your students about the Diversity Minor Program. The classes that comprise the minor span across the College of Arts and Sciences, so many of your students may be working toward the minor without even know it! Also, please let your students know that there are still available seats in DIS ST/CHID/LSJ 230: Intro to Disability Studies. I have included descriptions of the Diversity Minor Program and the Intro to Disability Studies course below. There are informational flyers attached to this email as well. Note that Intro to Disability Studies is one of the possible courses that could count toward the Diversity Minor! Many thanks, Jamie Diversity Minor Program: We would like to encourage you to consider pursuing the Diversity Minor! The minor is designed to strengthen students’ understanding of how race, class, gender, disability, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, religion, and age interact to define identities and social relations. The program brings cohesion to a variety of courses selected to increase students’ awareness about issues of power and privilege. Courses & Requirements The courses that comprise this 25-credit minor come from a wide range of departments within the College of Arts & Sciences, including Communications, CHID, Sociology, English, Anthropology, and more. Additional information about specific courses that fall within the minor can be found on our website. Other classes that are not already on our list may also be considered. For more information, please visit the website, send us an e-maildivminor@uw.edu>, “like” us on facebook, or come talk to the Diversity Minor Advisor in Padelford! DIS ST/CHID/LSJ 230: Introduction to Disability Studies This course will introduce you to a critical framework for recognizing how people with disabilities have experiences disadvantages and exclusion because of societal responses. We will explore how disability activists and scholars have reconceptualized disability from social-political, cultural, and human rights perspectives. Disability studies draws on links between disability, gender, class, and race, suggesting new ways of thinking about difference and identity, power and privilege, the body and society. ________________________________ Jamie Barnhorst, Academic Advisor C21: Disability Studies, Diversity Minor Program, and ELS University of Washington Padelford B-507 – (5th floor) Box 354380 206.616.2352 c21@uw.educ21@uw.edu> doc icon Flyer.docx
