Disability as Meta Curriculum: Epistemologies, Ontologies, and Transformative Praxis – Part I

Fri, November 1, 8:30 to 10:00am, Hyatt Regency, Floor: 3, Camden

Session Submission Type: Symposium


The papers in this symposium asks: What can be the transformative potential of critical community-building in curricular work if disability is considered integral to community? Disability studies scholarship embodies an epistemic space that not only demonstrates its difference from the normative curriculum, it also exceeds curriculum’s confining boundaries. Thus, thinking through Disability as Meta Curriculum, each of these papers argue for a “curriculum about curriculum” – one that critically investigates the epistemological, ontological, and pedagogical claims of the normative curriculum from the standpoint of critical disability studies. As such, each of these papers critically considers those moments when curriculum studies and disability meet to enable us to rethink the radical educational subject against the (hetero)normative, the able, the literate, and the human?
