TMCE 8541 Disability Studies and Theological Ethics (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course investigates Disability Studies at the intersections of interdisciplinary subjects in the humanities, including Scripture, theology, and theological ethics. Attention will be given to the hermeneutic work of Disability Studies and considerations in scripture studies, theology, and theological ethics. The course (1) presents the history of people with disabilities (similar to feminist retrievals of “undocumented stories” found by reading between the lines of texts), (2) explores the move from institutionalization to rights, liberties, and self-determination, and (3) considers how theological ethics in particular calls for something radically new in the way of solidarity between people with disabilities and their normate counterparts.

Schedule: Periodically

Instructor(s): Mary Jo Iozzio

Prerequisites: One graduate level course in fundamental moral theology (including CST) and one graduate level course in systematic theology, liberation theology or equivalent.
