Representations of disability in film

I have discovered a new planet. I am amazed.

My class is quarter is a new prep for me: Literary and Creative Expressions Across Cultures: Viewing Difference. I’ve themed it to study cinematic representations of disability. So I have be immersed in the new-to-me body of scholarship of disability studies.   OMG. It is more than intellectually stimulating. It names for me things in my life. I am still in that cloud of fog that accompanies falling into a new discourse.  It’s like putting on black leather and chains and walking into a biker bar for the first time. Or entering the academy. Or marrying into a new family.

But the ideas are burning. I don’t know how to know them yet. I may have to write (don’t tell Margi).
