Course # TBD: "Disability and Technoscience"

Fall Semester 2023 

Instructor: Dr. Rua M. Williams

*Open to all students. H credit possible.* 

This course is designed as interconnected modules that examine various aspects of technology in relation to disability, race, nationality, and class. Through weekly in-class and on-line discussion, students will learn how technology reinforces and propagates power relations that often lead to or support oppressive systems. Students will also explore emerging models of resistant technosocial practice arising from disabled and otherwise marginalized communities, and how they might support these models in their own work. For successful completion of this course, students will write an essay relating course materials and discussion to their own field of study.
